Are you new to skip hire in Leyland? Hiring a skip for the first time can be daunting but Adlington Skips can guide and advise you.

What information do you need?

When booking a skip online, you need to make sure you have the relevant information to hand, including:

  • name
  • address
  • delivery address
  • delivery date
  • collection date
  • contact details
  • payment method

If you’re hiring a skip for a specific time and date, you need to give Adlington Skips plenty of notice to avoid disappointment. Always plan your project in advance and make sure you arrange skip hire in Leyland in good time.

What can/can’t you dispose of?

Before you order a skip, think about the materials your project will generate. Skip hire Leyland is great for storing:

  • cardboard
  • construction waste
  • furniture
  • garden waste
  • plastic
  • wood

But some items require careful disposal and therefore, they need to be disposed of separately. Hazardous items must be kept out of skips, along with:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
  • chemicals
  • electricals
  • gas
  • fluorescent tubes
  • fridge/freezers
  • medical waste
  • oil/petrol/diesel
  • paints
  • plasterboard
  • TVs
  • tyres

Where to leave your skip?

Domestic skips are best left on your driveway or private land. However, if this isn’t possible, the team at Adlington Skips can place skips on the road but you will require a permit to legalise your skip hire in Leyland.

The permit can be obtained from the council on your behalf and will be added to the overall cost of your skip hire.

You don’t want your skip to cause problems for others – be mindful of your neighbours and make sure you don’t restrict their access. If left on the road, your skip must be visible to road users and pedestrians alike and lighting and cones are advised to ensure safety.
