Alnwick Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Alnwick?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Alnwick. We work with a network of both local and national companies to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to be sure they satisfy the high principles we require regarding service, price and environmental performance.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items such as tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the largest size that you can use for heavy waste like soil, concrete, stone and gravel.

Do you deliver skips across Northumberland?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both residential and business customers throughout Northumberland and elsewhere within the UK.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Alnwick?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.

What skip sizes do you offer?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Alnwick, you will have several sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them suitable for household clearances involving large items such as furniture and beds.

We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.

For more information about the different capacities available, such as dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during busy times.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by household customers as well. However, you should have a good amount of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, although they are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

It is vital to never overload your skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the excess waste. However safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is prohibited.

How much does skip hire in Alnwick cost?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Alnwick, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each option will cost you to order. If your skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.

What things can I put in my skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish which can result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we pick up in skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various other household products.

There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic objects (tumble dryers, TVs and computers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.

Do I need to be there when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we can gain access to where you want it delivered, we can take care of everything.

If you are not going to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the property. Or you might want to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder use of your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

Where does my waste go once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Alnwick?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.

Other areas covered include Corbridge, Amble, Haltwhistle, Blyth, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Hexham, Rothbury and Wooler.
