Hartlepool Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant amounts of waste. Mostly, these skips are used for business applications. However, domestic clients can also use them. It is very important consider the space they take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for lightweight waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Hartlepool?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load mark?
You must not fill up the skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be 2 weeks from your date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is finished with sooner than expected, contact us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into various waste streams, including metal, paper, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

Do all skips have a drop down door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, however these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest skips used to dispose of weighty construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.
A builders skip is great for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the loft, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects must be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
What sort of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that could come from garden work, building work and property clearances.
Among the most typical items that we collect in skips include dirt, timber, tree cuttings, cabinets, toilets, and various other household objects.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical products (refrigerators, TVs and washing machines for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them must comply with an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
