Below are some of the common questions we get about our skip hire services.
Annfield Plain Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Annfield Plain deliver my skip?
As we provide a national skip hire service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Can you deliver skips across Durham?
Yes, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations across Durham, such as Annfield Plain, Stockton-on-Tees, Hartlepool and Sedgefield. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, though these are typically less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
How long will it take to get a skip in Annfield Plain?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will typically give you a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (such as a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic items like old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition work. There are typically two different sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, concrete and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Can I load my skip higher than level load line?
It is essential never to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish. However secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
If I want a skip on the road in Annfield Plain, will I need a permit?
Normally, it will be possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you need to get consent from your local authority in Annfield Plain, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Am I allowed to put all sorts of waste in my skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, you must ensure that the kind of waste materials you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and construction waste, including old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general waste.
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a number of waste streams, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household customers as well. Having said that, you will require a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be provided for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Annfield Plain, you have multiple sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small household clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them great for house tidy ups involving large objects like furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For further information about the various sizes available, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we can manage it all.
If you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
