Swinton Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What is the cost of skip hire in Swinton?
The price of getting a skip in Swinton is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to 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 classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for construction jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as dirt, rubble and rock.
Although they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Swinton where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in a skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that may result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we find in skips include dirt, wood, tree trimmings, cabinets, toilets, as well as other household items.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (tumble dryers, televisions or laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them must abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Swinton firms with a significant amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Swinton?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Swinton. We employ a network of both local and national providers to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully vetted to ensure they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Swinton?
We have created our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to see the range of skip sizes we can supply in Swinton. Pick the right size to meet your needs and provide the details of when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction once your order is complete!
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Swinton?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can normally offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
Do you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?
We provide a national skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Swinton, Heywood, Shaw, Chadderton or any other area in Greater Manchester, we are able to help.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
If you run a company in Swinton and want to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Am I allowed to load up my skip above level load mark?
You should not load your skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Swinton?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
However, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and we will take care of everything.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in a skip. This can include items like printers, hobs, washing machines, freezers and television sets. Electric products can’t be discarded in the skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What skip sizes will have a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
