Salford Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, domestic clients may also order them. It is essential to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for light materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and rubble.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Salford, you have numerous options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for household tidy ups involving bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.

For more information about the various capacities available, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

How much will skip hire in Salford cost?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Salford, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost to hire. If the skip is going on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a variety of waste types, such as stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electronic items such as old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.

The same goes if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?

It is important to not overload your skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. However secure you believe the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is prohibited.

Will a Salford skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste matter such as soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the kind of waste you need to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

How long will it take to get a skip in Salford?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a charge for a wasted journey.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Salford?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to receive authorisation from your local authority in Salford, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should know before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
