Ashington Skip Hire FAQs

How long does it take to get a skip in Ashington?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will normally give a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving in a AM or PM slot.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are fantastic for a multitude of residential and commercial jobs. These are the biggest skips that can be used for heavy builders waste such as dirt, stone and concrete.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a business in Ashington and want to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the label implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for domestic work including modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.

In the event you are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you might want the skip to be located at a particular area of the drive. Or you may want to make sure the skip does not prevent use of your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that will come from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most common things which we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, bush cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and various other household items.

There are some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electronic goods (dishwashers, TVs and laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to abide by a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the top?

Unfortunately not. You can only fill your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to remove the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.

Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered goods such as cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

How much will skip hire in Ashington cost?

Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Ashington. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the street or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

Can you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?

We offer a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Ashington, Corbridge, Blyth, Berwick-upon-Tweed or another location in Northumberland, we can help.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into a variety of waste types, including stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Ashington, you will have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small house clearances and DIY jobs.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them well suited for house tidy ups involving large items such as furniture and beds.

We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.

To get more information about the different skip sizes offered, including proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Ashington?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to get authorisation from your local authority in Ashington, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

Will a Ashington skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we offer a national skip service, we use a diverse network of verified companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Other areas covered include Corbridge, Blyth, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Morpeth, Haltwhistle, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, Cramlington and Prudhoe.
