Widnes Skip Hire FAQs
What skip sizes will have a drop door?
For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
How long will it take to get a skip in Widnes?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a charge for the wasted trip.
What will happen to the waste?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Widnes where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your house. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you want it.
The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What size is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect solution. What size is known as a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost depends on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household tasks including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
How long can I hire a skip for?
Our regular hire time frame is 2 weeks from the delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.
We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

If I want a skip on a road in Widnes, will I need to have a permit?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you need to obtain permission from your local authority in Widnes, which is known as a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before booking that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is vital to never overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overload your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suited to a wide variety of residential and commercial tasks. They are the biggest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste such as soil, stone and bricks.
Can I throw all types of waste in the skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip will depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy building waste including concrete or garden soil, the maximum size you can get is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Electronic items including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items should be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a massive skip used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be used by domestic customers too. Having said that, you will require lots of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
