What waste can I put in my skip?
You can use your skip to discard lots of different waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling lots of materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and property clearances. Some examples of permitted waste types include things like:
- Hedge cuttings
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most materials are permitted, and so whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and waste types you discard in the skip can vary according to the size skip you have chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there any items that I can’t throw in the skip?
There are several materials which you will not be able to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items incorporate hazardous components that may cause damage to the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, and so they must be discarded separately under UK law.
Some of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Chemical substances
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical items such as cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What size is the mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this is not feasible, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Morpeth where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to get rid of large volumes of waste materials. Generally, these type of containers are used for commercial applications. However, residential clients may also hire them. It is very important consider the space they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be used for light-weight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Morpeth?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What skip sizes can you deliver?
Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Which skip sizes have got a door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, including earth, concrete and stone.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded container is hazardous, as waste could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please be sure to hire a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
