Chester-le-Street Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will have to remove any items above the level load line. This means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you need. We would be glad to help.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Chester-le-Street?
This depends upon the skip size you need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What size skips have got a drop door?
The majority of skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the delivery driver is given full access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
Am I able to throw away electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste items in your skip. This includes things such as laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and tv sets. These items can’t be discarded in your skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
If I require a skip on a road in Chester-le-Street, will I need to have a permit?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you need to get authorisation from your local council in Chester-le-Street, which is called a permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should know before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into several different waste streams, such as timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
