Middlesbrough Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into several different waste types, including wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Middlesbrough?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to get permission from the local council in Middlesbrough, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before booking that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.

We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost to hire.

Can you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
Indeed, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to locations throughout North Yorkshire, such as Middlesbrough, Malton, Haxby and Easingwold. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What skip sizes have a drop door?
For anybody who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is essential not to overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very dangerous to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you could be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure 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. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Middlesbrough, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available 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 ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups including bulky items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further information about the various capacities offered, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What kinds of rubbish can I throw in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which will result from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Among the most typical items that we see in our skips include dirt, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various household objects.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electronic products (dishwashers, monitors or washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them has to comply with an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
How do you order a skip?
Ordering a skip in Middlesbrough through us is very simple. Pick the skip size you will need and then enter a few details about when and where you want your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to get rid of significant volumes of waste. Primarily, these containers are used for commercial applications. Having said that, residential customers can also use them. It is important to think about the space they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and stone.
Will a skip hire company from Middlesbrough deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Middlesbrough and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are approved and tested to guarantee they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It may take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic products such as old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for domestic tasks like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for a wide variety of domestic and industrial tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, rubble and concrete.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this is not possible, you do not have to worry. Just let us know when making your booking, and then we will handle everything.
