Book in advance

If you need a skip for a particular date and time, don’t leave it to the last minute. Avoid disappointment by planning ahead and book your skip in plenty of time. 

Having the relevant information at hand when you make a booking makes it a whole lot easier. Here’s a list of what information you need:

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


Choose a skip size

One of the hardest decisions to make when it comes to skip hire Bolton is selecting a skip size. Adlington Skips supply a range of domestic skips, including:

  • 2yd mini skips
  • 3yd mini skips
  • 4yd midi skips
  • 8yd maxi skips

Perfect for DIY projects that produce a small to moderate amount of waste, domestic skips can be delivered to your home address and placed on your driveway or the road in front of your property.

As well as these, they provide commercial skips for large-scale projects, renowned for immense volumes of rubbish. They include:

  • 8yd enclosed skips
  • 10yd enclosed skips
  • 22-40yd roll on roll off skips
  • Enclosed compactor bins


Skip delivery

The best place to leave your skip is on private property. But this isn’t always possible and skips have to be left of the road. When skips are placed on the road, a permit from the local authority will be required. The cost of a permit is £35 and will need to be applied for in plenty of time – before your skip arrives.

On the day your skip is due to be delivered, you’ll be able to trace its whereabouts and make sure you’re home when it’s expected to arrive.


Loading the skip

Domestic and commercial skips have a maximum fill level which makes it easier for you to load with waste – without exceeding weight restrictions.

Skip hire Bolton is ideal if you need to remove garden waste, plastic, paper, metal or general waste. However, certain items need to be disposed of separately. To get the most out of your skip hire Bolton, remember to keep the following items out:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
