Why hiring a skip is a good idea_

Now is an ideal time to plan DIY projects – especially with the weather improving as we move towards the summer. Skips are great for accommodating all volumes of waste and make it easier for you to dispose of items you no longer want or need.

If you’re looking for skip hire in Wigan, you’ve come to the right place as we cover all areas across Lancashire. Let Lostock Skips cut to the chase and explain why hiring a skip is a good idea?


Instead of making countless trips to the tip yourself, we provide a wide range of domestic skips which make it more convenient for you to get rid of waste.

Skip hire in Wigan can save you time, effort and money, reducing the need for you to transport waste to the tip yourself, in your own car.

Our domestic skips leave our head office in Horwich and are delivered to your driveway or the roadside – on the back of our reliable fleets.

Choose from:

  • 2-cubic yard mini skips
  • 4-cubic yard midi skips
  • 6-cubic yard midi skips
  • 8-cubic yard maxi skips


Another reason why hiring a skip is a good idea is that landfill sites are running out of space to dump waste – resulting in increased landfill taxes. Rubbish that cannot be recycled is usually sent to landfill but more people are wrongly dumping recyclables too. This has can have a negative impact on the environment, causing pollution, water contamination, pests and unpleasant smells.

When skips are full, we collect them from your premises and transport them to the nearest sorting facility. It’s here that we separate recyclables from non-recyclables and make sure that materials are disposed of correctly.


We aim to recycle 90% of the items held inside skips, making skip hire in Wigan sustainable. It has a positive impact on future generations and reduces the demand for new products.

Whether you’re renovating your home or sprucing your garden, huge amounts of waste will be produced, including garden waste, plastic, paper and wood – which can be recycled.


Sometimes, leaving jobs to the professionals is the best option, and this is definitely the case when it comes to skip hire in Wigan. We have the knowledge and experience to tackle all kinds of jobs and can help you get rid of rubbish all in one go, rather than stop-starting your project whilst you remove waste singlehandedly.
