Corbridge Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Corbridge where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.
Having said that, if that isn’t feasible, you do not need to stress. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will handle everything.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop door helps make loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials like garden soil or concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like household furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
If I want a skip on a road in Corbridge, will I need a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to receive permission from your local council in Corbridge, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (like the street). Then, pick the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Corbridge on the day you have selected.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you manage a business in Corbridge and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are lifted using chains.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Corbridge?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be hired to discard substantial building and construction waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
The builders skip is great for a number of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the garden shed, these large skips are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
Do you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Corbridge, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Northumberland. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Corbridge, Morpeth or Berwick-upon-Tweed, we have got it covered.
What is the cost of skip hire in Corbridge?
Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Corbridge. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip located on the street or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a preferred pick up day at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy periods.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What are the different skip sizes available?
Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, like soil and stone. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Electronic products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
You can load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or garden soil, the maximum size you can use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
Will a skip hire company from Corbridge deliver my skip?
As we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified businesses. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
Can I fill my skip above the level load line?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please ensure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
