Bedlington Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver skips across Northumberland?
Indeed, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas across Northumberland, including Bedlington, Wooler, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and Ashington. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?
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 rubbish will get sorted into a number of waste types, which includes wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Bedlington?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or house, you will have to obtain permission from the local authority in Bedlington, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Can I dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Electrical items including TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products have to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How long does it take to get a skip in Bedlington?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for the wasted journey.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bedlington?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Bedlington, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost to hire. If your skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Bedlington, you have various sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are well suited for household clear ups involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For more information regarding the various sizes offered, such as measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What types of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?
You can load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy building wastes like rubble or top soil, the maximum size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often used for building and demolition work. There are typically two different sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and rock.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Bedlington?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (such as the road). Next, pick the date you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bedlington on the day you have selected.
Do all skips have a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop door will make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as soil or concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic work such as small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bedlington?
We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Bedlington and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is important never to overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you may be asked to take away the surplus waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is prohibited.
