Our Wide Range Of Waste Storage Options

We offer two different types of skips here at Sheridan Skips, which are perfect for a variety of builders and homeowners who want to remove excess materials and household waste during a project. We have four-yard (yd) skips and eight-yard skips available and both of them can be delivered to your site or household and collected once full.

As a Manchester skip hire business, we have helped dozens of businesses and families across Greater Manchester. As a family, we take great pride in being able to help in their latest clearance projects by safely and responsibly removing household and trade waste in one of our skips.

Whether it is your first time hiring a skip, or your 100th, our professional customer service team can help in any way you prefer. If, for instance, you need help understanding sizing and what works for you, we’ll be happy to talk about your project, the potential waste that will be produced, and then help you select the most appropriate skip.

We know that the absolute last thing you want is to spend an excessive amount of money on a skip that is too big for the job, or not spend enough, and end up with overloaded skips that aren’t suitable.

At the end of the day, it’s all about finding the right solution, and our team will happily help with that. After all, we’ve been providing impeccable skip hire in Manchester for 25 years as a family run business so we’d like to think we know a thing or two about these types of waste storage solutions! What follows is a brief rundown of the waste removal options, the skips, that we can hire out to you.

Which Skip Is Right For Me?

Hiring a 4 Cubic Yard Skip
This particular size of skip, the 4 cubic yd skip, is the middle option in our range of affordable skips and can comfortably hold 30-50 bin bags and/or 4 tonnes of waste.

As a result, it is very popular among domestic customers and traditional builders who are looking to ‘gut’ a property or commercial premises and remove everything from it. This mid-range option will work for a lot of clearance projects and industrial projects, and prices for this exact skip start at £180 including VAT.

How Much Is It To Hire One Of Our Skips?

Skip hire prices in Manchester, and the surrounding areas of Oldham, SaleAshton-under-Lyne, Tameside, Salford, Bury, Stockport and more, vary depending on the job at hand. To come up with an accurate cost, it’s vital that we understand the level of waste you estimate will be created as a result of the work. This applies to domestic skips, used for home renovations and DIY projects, and builder’s skips which are used on site. Understanding the size of the job is just one factor in figuring out the price.

Other factors include geography because, traditionally, waste disposal companies charge more in the south than they do in the north. A third key factor is to do with permits which may or may not be required depending on where you intend on placing the skip. If you have a big enough driveway, or garden, to house the skip then you don’t need a permit because it is private property.

However, if you’re working on a job in Oldham, for example, that does require a skip to be placed on a roadside, a permit from your local council will need to be issued. At Sheridan Skips, we’ve helped commercial clients and domestic ones with acquiring permits and know the process inside out.

This knowledge is part of our reliable skip hire service and helps speed up the permit process because we know which steps are next, what needs to be done, and what you need to prepare for in advance. On the day skip arrives, we’ll make sure that you have your permit in place so you can focus on the job at hand.

What Size Waste Storage Solution Do I Need?

Much like the price of skips, the size of them will depend on what you need them for, and how much waste you expect to produce during the job. For builders, tradespeople, and people in the construction industry, knowing what size skip is needed will be second nature because they’ve done it so many times and have a good idea of what solution is needed for each job.

In our experience, most of our clients go with 4 cubic yd skip as this can house a good amount of bin bags and other waste, without taking up too big of a footprint on site.

For those who have never hired a skip, working with Sheridan Skips means we can help you select the right skip if you’re struggling to find the answer to the question: “What skip size do I need?”. We’ll assess the task and then our friendly service team can help come up with the ideal option for clearance of earth, furniture, and other materials, into a skip that is the perfect size for your needs.

When thinking about what skip size you need, think about the type of job you’re going to do and then visualise the amount of waste that is going to be produced during it. If you’re renovating one room in your house, a small skip will more than likely hold all the waste materials produced.

However, if you’re redoing an entire kitchen, back garden, or front drive, you may well need a bigger skip that is going to be able to handle the vast amounts of materials that will be thrown in it. As we mentioned earlier, it’s about finding the right one for you.

What Can You Put In A Skip?

Book a Skip

What you can put in a skip and what you can’t put in a skip are governed by strict laws, specifically, The Builders’ Skips (Markings) Regulations 1984. In it, it highlights the reasons why the regulations are in place, and what must be followed to lawfully place a skip on a public road. The law also reinforces the things that are, and aren’t, allowed to be put in a skip. This is to protect the environment and ensure nothing damaging is being willfully dumped in the wrong place, or disposed of in such a way that it emits harmful and dangerous chemicals.

The items you can put in a skip include, wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper and cardboard, clothes, and garden waste. You can also load it with heavy building materials such as stones, rubble, clay, metals, bricks, and concrete.

Just as important, however, is knowing what you can’t put in the skip. This list of items includes asbestos, gas cylinders, animal waste, explosives, batteries, any kind of oil, paint, TVs and other similar electrical devices, lighting, and tyres.

As skip hire experts in Manchester, we’re committed to making sure that our teams follow maximised recycling principles to ensure that all the waste that we collect won’t just be thrown into a landfill, and damage the local environment further. Our recycling services are much appreciated by our clients, both domestic and commercial, who enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re not contributing to errant waste disposal.
