Below are a few of the typical questions we receive relating to our skip hire services.
Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a company in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a 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.
How long does it take to get a skip in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted journey.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we can take care of everything.
In case you are not likely to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your drive. Or you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.
Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?
Electronic items including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea?
Ordering a skip in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea through us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and then enter a few details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excess waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded container will be unsafe, as materials could fall and cause personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have further waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like dirt or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky items like pieces of furniture much easier too.
Most skips can be provided with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to supply a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Newbiggin-by-the-Sea businesses with a significant volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How big is a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip that is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size that can be used for heavy waste matter including soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we provide in your area and how much each size will cost to order.

What can I put in my skip?
A skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items produced from building jobs, garden projects and household tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products include:
- Tree cuttings
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste materials are generally allowed, so whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you put in the skip will vary based on the size skip you hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to dispose of top soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you will be allowed to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are a few waste materials that you are not able to discard in the skip. The reason for this is that some items contain hazardous components which could cause damage to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.
Some examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
What will happen to the waste?
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 waste will be separated into the different waste materials, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can provide skips to household and business customers throughout Northumberland and elsewhere within the UK.
