Stalybridge Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is collected?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, plastics, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Will you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Greater Manchester and anywhere else within the UK.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Stalybridge, you have multiple sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small home clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next size available 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 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are suitable for household tidy ups including large items like furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or rubble.

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

What can I put in my skip?

A skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of materials from building work, garden landscaping and household clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many materials are allowed, and so whether you wish to throw out metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you throw into the skip will vary according to which size skip you chosen. Skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to discard garden soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What kind of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are several materials that you are not allowed to get rid of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements which may be harmful to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately under UK law.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How much will skip hire in Stalybridge cost?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Stalybridge, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each size will cost you to order. If your skip is going on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

If I need a skip on a road in Stalybridge, will I need to have a permit?

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic project, then the driveway will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Stalybridge. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that is not feasible, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for as long as 14 days from the date of delivery. It is possible to give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy periods.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients too. Having said that, you need plenty of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, these containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

Will a Stalybridge skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Stalybridge and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner firms are verified and tested to make certain they meet our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest size that can be used for heavy waste like garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old electronic waste items in a skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and televisions. Electric items can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Stalybridge?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Then, select the day you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Stalybridge on the date you have chosen.

How long does it take to get a skip in Stalybridge?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted journey.

What skip sizes can have a drop door?

Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

Can I fill my skip higher than the level load line?

It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as waste could fall and cause personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure that you order a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Other areas covered include Denton, Failsworth, Swinton, Manchester, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Salford, Hale and Partington.
