Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we have received about our skip hire and recycling services.

Kirkby Lonsdale Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver to other areas in Cumbria?

In addition to delivering our range of skips to Kirkby Lonsdale, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Cumbria. By utilising a network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Kirkby Lonsdale, Cockermouth or Millom, we have got you covered.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you want it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

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

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are permitted too. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in your skip.

There are, however, a few things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they might trigger.

You are unable to get rid of your refrigerator, computer or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous components in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from normal rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Please email us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Where does my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic items including washing machines, TVs, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted trip.

How big is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be used to discard weighty building waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a number of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out your shed, these substantial containers are often the most affordable solution available.

Is it okay to load my skip above the side?

It is important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excess waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as materials could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To avoid this situation, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Will a Kirkby Lonsdale skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Kirkby Lonsdale. We utilize a network of both local and national companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to guarantee they match the high standards we require when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can normally hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.

What is the cost of skip hire in Kirkby Lonsdale?

This will depend on the size you need and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Kirkby Lonsdale?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the road). Then, choose the date you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Kirkby Lonsdale on the day you have chosen.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Kirkby Lonsdale?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a residential job, then your drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or other public property in Kirkby Lonsdale. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What skip sizes do you supply?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Kirkby Lonsdale, you will have multiple options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for household clearances involving large objects like household furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.

For further details about the various capacities available, including proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Other areas covered include Cockermouth, Millom, Ambleside, Kirkby Stephen, Grange-over-Sands, Wigton, Kendal and Appleby-in-Westmorland.
