Hebburn Skip Hire FAQs
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to access where you want it delivered, we can take care of it all.
For those who are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the property. Or you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions will be passed to the lorry driver.

How big is a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be hired to dispose of substantial building waste such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builders skip is great for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the attic, these large containers are often the most affordable option available.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
How long can I keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Do you deliver skips across Tyne and Wear?
Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to both domestic and commercial customers throughout Tyne and Wear and elsewhere in the UK.
Is it ok to fill up my skip above the level load mark?
You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to transport, and you may be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
Which size skips have a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Hebburn?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Hebburn. We utilize a network of both local and national companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively vetted to be sure they satisfy the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
If I would like a skip on the road in Hebburn, will I need to have a permit?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you will need to get permission from your local council in Hebburn, which is called a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic customers may also order them. You have to take into account the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and rubble.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a range of waste streams, such as stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is essential to check that the kind of waste you need to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you could throw in a skip include home items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, like old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, because electronic products like old TVs, refrigerators, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
