Cramlington Skip Hire FAQs
Can I throw all kinds of waste in my skip?
You can put a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, tile, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden jobs are permitted too. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are some items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they might trigger.
You can not throw in your fridge, television or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Please email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
No, you can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste materials up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
How much does skip hire in Cramlington cost?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Cramlington, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each one costs to order. If your skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things like printers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and computer monitors. Electrical products can’t be thrown in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted trip.
Will you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?
We provide a national skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Cramlington, Bedlington, Rothbury, Prudhoe or any other area in Northumberland, we are able to help.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Cramlington?
Ordering a skip in Cramlington through us is incredibly straightforward. Decide on the skip size you require and then enter a handful of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial size skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that generate significant volumes of waste.
Which skip sizes have a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
How large is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from company to company, according to what sizes they provide.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We are able to provide a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for larger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Cramlington companies which have a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when your skip is delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to company property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of building and demolition materials, such as garden soil, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Cramlington where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cramlington?
In the vast majority of 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 want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you must secure authorisation from the local council in Cramlington, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that securing the permit will often take up to two working days.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
