Kirkby Stephen Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load mark?
It is important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as materials could drop and result in injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please ensure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The items in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, like metal, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How can I order a skip in Kirkby Stephen?
Hiring a skip in Kirkby Stephen through us is very easy. Choose the skip size you want and then enter a few details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.
Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there at the time it is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
However, if that is not possible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know when 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.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that could result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Among the most typical things which we see in our skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household products.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electronic goods (refrigerators, televisions and computers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for construction jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste, such as soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
Our company offers a full selection of skip sizes to domestic and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags

Our simple online booking platform provides you with a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in the skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like computers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. Electrical objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Kirkby Stephen?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to secure permission from the local council in Kirkby Stephen, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before booking that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport large volumes of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are used for commercial applications.

Due to this, they must only be hired for light waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
