Standish Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suitable for a wide variety of household and industrial tasks. They are the biggest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, stone and gravel.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that is not achievable, you do not need to stress. Just let us know when placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Standish?

This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
If I would like a skip on the road in Standish, will I need a permit?
In most cases, it is possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you will need to have consent from your local council in Standish, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How can I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire.

Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Standish on the day you have selected.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
We offer a national skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Standish, Ince-in-Makerfield, Droylsden, Bramhall or any other site in Greater Manchester, we can help.
Am I allowed to load my skip above level load mark?
It is important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excess waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin can be unsafe, as materials could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What is the cost of skip hire in Standish?
Our aim is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Standish. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip placed on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Standish, you will have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups including bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For more information about the various sizes available, including dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electrical products such as old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop down door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, however these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport significant amounts of waste materials. In most cases, these type of skips are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, residential clients can also order them. It is very important consider the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for lightweight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and stone.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in the skip.
However, there are things that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You can not get rid of your fridge freezer, laptop or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous materials in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Feel free to email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste types, including timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How soon can you deliver a skip in Standish?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.
