Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive regarding our skip hire and recycling services.
Tyldesley Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
Will you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas throughout Greater Manchester, including Tyldesley, Failsworth, Altrincham and Farnworth. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually supply skips to Tyldesley the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want a skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items such as cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your house. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Am I allowed to put all sorts of waste in my skip?
Before getting a skip, it is essential to check that the type of rubbish you want to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can throw in your skip include household items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, like old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
Is it okay to fill the skip above the top?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being told to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip is hazardous, as rubbish could fall and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please make sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like household furniture.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial size skips used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that produce large quantities of waste.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Tyldesley?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you will have to secure permission from your local council in Tyldesley, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial building and demolition materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
A builder’s skip is great for a number of tasks. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the attic, these large skips tend to be the most affordable option available.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Tyldesley, you will have several options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
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 builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for household clearances involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
To get more information about the different sizes offered, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What will happen to the rubbish?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Tyldesley where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Tyldesley?
The price of hiring a skip in Tyldesley will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have your skip placed on the road, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
