Jarrow Skip Hire FAQs

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that produce large quantities of waste.

Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you want it.

The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Which skip sizes will have a drop down door?

Having a skip that has a drop door makes loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials like dirt and stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky items like household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a number of waste streams, such as stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can normally hire the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.

Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Jarrow?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a household task, then the driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Jarrow. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Jarrow?

We can usually deliver skips to Jarrow the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform offers you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want your skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electrical products including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods must be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Jarrow?

Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Jarrow. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip placed on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

What can I put in the skip?

You can put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include timber, tile, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.

However, there are some things that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risk they can cause.

You can’t throw in your refrigerator, printer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous components in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal waste.

If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this material. Please email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, depending on what sizes they offer.

The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic jobs including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Will you deliver to other areas in Tyne and Wear?

Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to both residential and industrial customers across Tyne and Wear and anywhere else in the UK.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a selection of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

It is essential to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you may be required to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is prohibited.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are great for numerous household and business jobs. They are the largest skip sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste like soil, rubble and concrete.
