Blyth Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Blyth deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Blyth and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are approved and tested to ensure they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?

The items in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, such as soil, paper, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are ideal for numerous types of household and commercial jobs. These are the largest size skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, rubble and concrete.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Blyth?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Blyth, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost to hire. If the skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products like washing machines, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can gain access to where you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.

When you are not likely to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned on a particular area of the drive. Or you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed to the lorry driver.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by household customers too. Having said that, you will need a lot of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.

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

You are able to put a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.

However, there are some materials that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they can cause.

You can’t throw in your freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load mark?

It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin is unsafe, as waste could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure you order a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Blyth?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic option for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
