Aspatria Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste materials, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door can make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier as well.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Aspatria?
Hiring a skip in Aspatria with us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you require and then enter a handful of details about where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.
Is it okay to load my skip above the top?
It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excessive waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip is unsafe, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please ensure that you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You can give a chosen pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished, and then we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over hectic times.
Can I put electrical items in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This can include such things as laptops, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and televisions. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Aspatria?
Since we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Am I able to put all types of rubbish in my skip?
You can use a skip to throw out many different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items produced from construction work, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Household furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste materials will be allowed, so whether you need to discard metals, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and materials you put in the skip can vary based on which size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to discard garden soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size container you will be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there any items which I can’t put in the skip?
There are several items which you are not allowed to dispose of in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous elements which could cause harm to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately within UK law.
A few of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Chemical substances
What skip sizes do you deliver?
We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular choice for bigger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Aspatria companies which generate a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you deliver to other areas in Cumbria?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas throughout Cumbria, such as Aspatria, Windermere, Whitehaven and Dalton-in-Furness. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Aspatria?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Aspatria. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges 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 wish to have the skip placed on the street or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport significant volumes of waste. Predominantly, these containers are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, domestic clients may also order them. It is essential to look at the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to a company property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, if you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy waste materials like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Aspatria?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a drive or within your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Aspatria?
We can usually deliver skips to Aspatria the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program gives you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need the skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
