Skip placement

Skips can be placed on public or private property. They are best positioned on your driveway – out of harm’s way and easily accessible for you to dispose of rubbish – however, they can also be left on the road.

When skips are left on the road, you will need to obtain a permit from the local authority. But to make skip hire Wigan even easier, Wigan Skips take care of this on your behalf – saving you the time and effort whilst keeping in line with stringent skip hire regulations.

If you’re leaving the skip on the road, it needs to be 15m away from junctions and surrounded with safety cones and lighting to ensure visibility at night. As well as this, you need to make sure that the skip doesn’t block or restrict access to driveways or manholes. 

Skip delivery

Wigan Skips arrange a suitable date and time to deliver the skip to your home address, placing it on your drive or the road in front of your property, using their reliable fleets.

Please be mindful that their fleets are large vehicles and need sufficient space to manoeuvre safely.

Skip loading

Skip hire Wigan allows you to throw out what you don’t need, straight away. Although they are great for plastic, metal, paper, wood, furniture and general waste, certain items need to be kept out of them, including:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
  • chemicals
  • hazardous waste
  • liquids
  • paint tins
  • solvents
  • tyres

…and more. To keep your skip hire Wigan costs as low as possible, and to ensure compliance with skip hire laws, contact Wigan Skips and find out what you can and can’t dispose of.

Skip collection

As soon as your skip is full, call 01942 957 358 and the Wigan Skips team will collect it as soon as possible.

Once your skip has been safely lifted onto the back of the loading vehicle, it’s transported to the nearest sorting facility where the contents of the skip will be emptied and thoroughly sorted into what can be recycled, reused or tipped.
