Sale Skip Hire FAQs
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the road). Next, pick the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Sale on the date you have chosen.
If I want a skip on a road in Sale, will I need a permit?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a household project, then your driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you must get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Sale. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical items like old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Can you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to domestic and business customers across Greater Manchester and anywhere else in the UK.
What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, like metal, plastics, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little bit longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most often used for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste, such as garden soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Sale?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Sale?
Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Sale. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
If you manage a company in Sale and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are lifted using chains.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
A skip may be used to get rid of many different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste types include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Most waste types will be allowed, therefore whether you would like to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and materials you put in your skip can vary depending on which size skip you chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size container you will be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are some materials that you are not able to get rid of in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items include hazardous materials that may cause harm to the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK legislation.
Examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Car tyres

Will the skip come with a drop down door?
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like furniture.
Is it okay to load my skip above the level load mark?
You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being collected.
Will a skip hire company from Sale deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Sale. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively vetted to make certain they satisfy the high standards we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
