Longbenton Skip Hire FAQs
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for building jobs. There are typically two sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Longbenton?
The cost of hiring a skip in Longbenton depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Longbenton, you will have various sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups involving large items such as household furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For more details about the various skip sizes available, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Is it okay to fill up my skip above the level load line?
You must not load the skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be picked up.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Longbenton?
In most cases, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you have got to get consent from the local authority in Longbenton, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver is given full access and that your skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
How do you hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Longbenton through us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you will need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can usually give a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a street), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Can you deliver skips across Tyne and Wear?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Longbenton, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Tyne and Wear. By utilising our network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Longbenton, Ryton or Whitley Bay, we have got you covered.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to throw all types of rubbish in the skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, some things that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risks they might cause.
You cannot get rid of your fridge, printer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Please email us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you have a company in Longbenton and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered items like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods should be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
