Urmston Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are hired for commercial uses. However, domestic customers can also hire them. You will need to think about the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for lightweight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the correct sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you require. We would be happy to help.
Am I able to throw electrical items in the skip?
Electrical products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items should be separated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
How can I order a skip?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to view all the different skips we are able to deliver to Urmston. Select which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on private property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Urmston?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic job, then the drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Urmston. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can usually hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It can take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction projects. There are usually two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, including earth, concrete and bricks.
Although they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Urmston?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What things can I put in the skip?
Before hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can discard in a skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from general waste.
How much does skip hire in Urmston cost?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Urmston. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.
However, when this isn’t feasible, you do not have to worry. Simply let us know when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
Which skip sizes have got a drop door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is provided.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Urmston firms which generate a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What will happen to the waste?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Urmston where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

We provide a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Urmston, Ashton-under-Lyne, Droylsden, Salford or any other area in Greater Manchester, we can help.
How long does it take to get a skip in Urmston?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure 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.
