Whitworth Skip Hire FAQs

What happens to the waste in the skip?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Whitworth where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Whitworth?

Ordering a skip in Whitworth through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered to you.

How much will skip hire in Whitworth cost?

This will depend on the skip size you require and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Am I able to put electrical products in the skip?

Unfortunately not, since electrical products like old TVs, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by household clients as well. However, you will need a lot of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, these skips should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.

What skip sizes have a drop door?

Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when choosing a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What types of waste can I put in my skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that can come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Some of the most common items that we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and other household products.

There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic items (tumble dryers, monitors or washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to comply with an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.

Is it ok to fill the skip higher than level load line?

It is important never to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overfill the skip, you may be required to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that is not achievable, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Whitworth firms with a significant volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are great for an array of residential and commercial projects. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste including top soil, rubble and concrete.

How big is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste 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 receiving a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during hectic times.

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

In most cases, it is possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you need to have consent from your local council in Whitworth, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
