Frequently Asked Questions

What size skip should I hire for my project?

The size of the skip you need to hire depends on the amount of waste you have to dispose of. Skips come in various sizes, ranging from 2 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards. For smaller DIY projects, a 2 or 4-cubic-yard skip may be sufficient, whereas, for larger construction sites, a 16 to 40-cubic-yard skip may be required.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The length of time you can keep the skip for will depend on the skip hire company you choose. Generally, most companies allow for a rental period of 7 to 14 days. If you require the skip for a longer period, you may be able to arrange an extended rental period with the skip hire company.

 

What can I put in the skip?

Do I need a permit to place the skip on the road in Bury?

Step 1: Choosing the right size skip

 

When choosing the right size skip for your project, you need to consider the volume of waste you will generate. If you are doing a small DIY project, a 2-3 cubic yard skip may be sufficient. For larger home renovations or garden clearances, a 6-8 cubic yard skip would be more appropriate. For bigger construction projects, you may need a larger skip, such as a 12-16 cubic yard skip. It's important to estimate the amount of waste you will generate accurately, as overfilling the skip can result in additional charges.

Step 2: Preparing for skip delivery
 

Before the skip is delivered, you need to ensure that there is enough space for it to be placed. The skip should be placed on a flat, firm surface, and there should be enough clearance for the delivery truck to access the area. You may need to move any vehicles or obstacles out of the way to make space for the skip. If you plan to place the skip on a public road or footpath, you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. The skip hire company can assist you with obtaining the permit.

Step 3: Loading the skip
 

When loading the skip, you should be mindful of what can and cannot be put in it. Items such as general household waste, construction waste, and green waste can be put in the skip. However, hazardous waste, such as asbestos, chemicals, and batteries, cannot be put in the skip. It's important to check with the skip hire company for their specific guidelines on what can and cannot be put in the skip. When loading the skip, make sure that the waste is evenly distributed and that nothing is protruding from the top or sides. Overfilling the skip can result in additional charges or even the skip being refused for collection.

Step 4: Skip collection

Once the skip is full, the skip hire company will arrange for it to be collected. You need to ensure that the skip is accessible for the collection vehicle and that there are no obstructions in the way. If you have placed the skip on a public road or footpath, you need to ensure that it is collected within the time frame specified by your local council.

Step 5: Disposal of waste
 

The waste collected from your skip will be taken to a licensed waste transfer station for processing and recycling. The skip hire company should be able to provide you with details on how the waste is processed and what proportion of it is recycled. In Manchester, there are strict regulations around waste disposal, and it's important to choose a skip-hire company that is compliant with these regulations.
