Blaydon Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of skip hire in Blaydon?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Blaydon, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip is going on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Blaydon?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Blaydon and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are verified and tested to ensure they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a chosen pick up day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during hectic times.
Is it okay to fill up my skip above the level load mark?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will have to remove any materials above the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you need. We will be pleased to help.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste streams, including wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a company in Blaydon and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted using chains.
Can I throw away electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical products such as old TVs, cookers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to access where you need it delivered, we will take care of it all.
For those who are not likely to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip does not hinder use of your garage.
No matter what the case might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
If I would like a skip on a road in Blaydon, will I need to have a permit?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Blaydon?
Hiring a skip in Blaydon with us is incredibly straightforward. Select the skip size you will need and input a few details about when and where you need the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
Can you deliver skips across Tyne and Wear?
Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to household and business customers across Tyne and Wear and elsewhere in the UK.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You may use your skip to discard a variety of waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of items generated from construction jobs, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Household furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste types are accepted, and therefore whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and things you put in the skip may vary depending on the size skip you have chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size container you would be permitted to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are a few materials you are not allowed to discard in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous materials which could cause damage to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.
Examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Chemical substances
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
What sizes do skips come in?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Blaydon firms with a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
Should you need some help deciding on which size skip you require, take a look at our useful skip size comparison.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is hired throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the largest size which you can use for hefty waste matter such as garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
