Below are a few of the typical questions we receive with regards to our skip hire services.

Trawden Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver skips across Lancashire?

We provide a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Trawden, Oswaldtwistle, Skelmersdale, Freckleton or any other site in Lancashire, we can help.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Trawden businesses which generate a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that may result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Among the most typical items that we collect in our skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cupboards, toilets, and various other household objects.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electrical products (fridges and freezers, televisions or cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Trawden?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips used to dispose of weighty construction waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.

A builders skip is great for a number of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the attic, these big containers tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

Using a skip that has a drop door will make loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials such as garden soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not throw old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes items like computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. These products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial scale skips used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large amounts of waste.

Is it okay to fill the skip above the top?

No. You are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?

The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, including soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

When you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the best choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they supply.

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 cost is based on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic work like small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Trawden?

The price of getting a skip in Trawden depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Trawden?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Trawden and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are approved and tested to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

How do you hire a skip?

We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Trawden. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to confirm the order once your order is done!

How long can I keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your house. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Other areas covered include Oswaldtwistle, Skelmersdale, Freckleton, Darwen, Preston, Carnforth, Brierfield and Great Harwood.
