Below are some of the frequently asked questions we have received relating to our skip hire services.
Brampton Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver to other areas in Cumbria?
We offer a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Brampton, Cleator Moor, Cockermouth, Barrow-in-Furness or another location in Cumbria, we can assist.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the side?
Unfortunately not. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you can be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen collection day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy periods.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being home when your skip arrives means you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your business property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
Will a skip hire company from Brampton deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Brampton and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to ensure they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Brampton businesses with a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a business in Brampton and want to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Will the skip have a drop door?
Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products must be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical goods like tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How much will skip hire in Brampton cost?
This is determined by the skip size you need and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Brampton?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, you will save some money.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
Before getting your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of rubbish you need to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, like timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Brampton?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are perfect for numerous domestic and business jobs. They are the largest size skips that can be used for hefty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and gravel.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they provide.
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 specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for domestic work like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Other areas covered include Cleator Moor, Cockermouth, Barrow-in-Furness, Windermere, Kendal, Aspatria, Longtown and Egremont.
