Billingham Skip Hire FAQs
Which skip sizes can have a drop down door?
If you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically 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, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.
Can I fill the skip above level load line?
You must not load your skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be picked up.
How much does skip hire in Billingham cost?

We will immediately show you which skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
How do you order a skip?
We have designed our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to check out all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Billingham. Pick the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to verify the transaction as soon as your booking is complete!
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will normally give you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
If I want a skip on a road in Billingham, will I need a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you manage a company in Billingham and want to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are lifted using chains.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two different sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste, such as soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Can I put electronic products in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things like printers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and television sets. Electric products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Billingham where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Will you deliver to other areas in Durham?
As well as delivering skips to Billingham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Durham. Through a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Billingham, Ferryhill or Seaham, we have got it covered.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of offering a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Billingham and the rest of the country. All of our partner businesses are verified and tested to ensure they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What can I put in the skip?
It is possible to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, soil, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste like bricks or dirt, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Other areas covered include Ferryhill, Seaham, Stanhope, Darlington, Newton Aycliffe, Stanley, Consett and Chester-le-Street.
