Below are some of the common questions we have received regarding our skip hire services.
Sandbach Skip Hire FAQs
Can I load my skip above the level load line?
No, you are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line would make it dangerous to move, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that will come from garden work, construction work and household clearances.
Among the most common items that we pick up in our skips include soil, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various other household products.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical objects (fridges and freezers, TVs and printers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to follow an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
What will happen to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Sandbach?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip that is used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size which can be used for heavy waste like dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Having a skip that has a drop down door can make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky objects such as pieces of furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and televisions. Electric products can’t be thrown in your skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Sandbach?
Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a residential job, then a driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you must have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Sandbach. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household clients too. However, you will require lots of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.
What is the cost of skip hire in Sandbach?
The cost of getting a skip in Sandbach depends on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips are available in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small household tasks.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Sandbach?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (like the road). Next, select the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Sandbach on the date you have selected.
Will you deliver to other areas in Cheshire?
Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations throughout Cheshire, such as Sandbach, Winsford, Nantwich and Neston. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How big is a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip is different from business to business, determined by what sizes they provide.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household work like small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
