Maryport Skip Hire FAQs

Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered items including tv sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products must be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

What skip sizes do you supply?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Maryport, you will have several options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

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

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

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them well suited for house clear ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or concrete.

For additional information about the different skip sizes offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Maryport?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Maryport and the rest of the UK. Our partner companies are verified and tested to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will then have to empty any materials above the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you hire the correct sized skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be glad to help.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, such as soil, plastics, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

Which size skips will have a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce significant amounts of waste.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Maryport?

We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Maryport. Pick the right size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you want the skip delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction once your order is done!

How long can I hire a skip for?

Our normal hire period is 14 days from the delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can in most cases supply skips to Maryport the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking system provides you with a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The name builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.

A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the shed, these large containers are often the most cost-effective choice available.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might 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 solution to handle many tasks.

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

Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

What things can I put in the skip?

You are able to throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes wood, tile, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are permitted also. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in a skip.

There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they may cause.

You can not throw in your refrigerator, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to contact us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Can you deliver skips across Cumbria?

Yes. 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 can offer skips to domestic and business customers throughout Cumbria and anywhere else in the UK.

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

No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we are able to take care of everything.

In the event you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular area of your drive. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip does not block access to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Maryport?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Maryport?

Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Maryport. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip located on the street or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

Other areas covered include Workington, Milnthorpe, Millom, Appleby-in-Westmorland, Barrow-in-Furness, Egremont, Bowness-on-Windermere and Cockermouth.
