Worsley Skip Hire FAQs
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Worsley, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are perfect for house clear ups involving bulky objects like furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further information about the various skip sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Worsley?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Worsley. We employ a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully vetted to be sure they fulfill the high expectations we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the level load line?
You should not fill up your skip past the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be picked up.
What happens to the rubbish?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Worsley where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How big is the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household tasks such as small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Worsley with us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you need and enter a few details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered to you.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building wastes including rubble or soil, the biggest size you can use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this provides you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Worsley?
The cost of hiring a skip in Worsley depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip placed on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often used for construction work. There are generally two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, like earth, concrete and rock.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you will require a lot of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be provided for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Can you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
As well as delivering skips to Worsley, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Greater Manchester. With the help of a network of local and national skip hire companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Worsley, Stockport or Dukinfield, we have got it covered.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Worsley?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to get permission from the local council in Worsley, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that getting the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Which skip sizes will have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like laptops, hobs, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. Electronic products can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
