Stockport Skip Hire FAQs
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Stockport, you will have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for house clear ups including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or stone.
For more details about the various sizes offered, such as proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?
In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
You must not fill the skip beyond the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to remove any excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.
What will happen to the rubbish?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
If I want a skip on the road in Stockport, will I need to have a permit?
Generally, it is possible to have the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you have got to have approval from your local council in Stockport, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products like old televisions, refrigerators, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for numerous types of domestic and industrial projects. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste like dirt, rubble and bricks.
Will you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?
Certainly, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations across Greater Manchester, such as Stockport, Gatley, Stretford and Ramsbottom. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big commercial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce large amounts of waste materials.
Will a skip hire company from Stockport deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Stockport. We work with a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly assessed to ensure they satisfy the high principles we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.
How long will it take to get a skip in Stockport?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Stockport?
This depends on the size you want and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

What kinds of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that will result from garden work, building work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things that we see in our skips include garden soil, wood, bush cuttings, cupboards, sinks, and various other household products.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, TVs or laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Stockport?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery address to view the range of skips we can deliver to Stockport. Pick the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it will be positioned on private property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Our standard hire time frame is two weeks from the date of delivery. However, when you order the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
