Newcastle-under-Lyme Skip Hire FAQs

Who will deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste which can result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Among the most typical items that we pick up in skips include dirt, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen units, sinks, and other household items.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electrical goods (fridges and freezers, televisions and washing machines for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them must comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for domestic jobs including modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What is classed as a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition projects. There are generally two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and rock.

Although branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Can I fill my skip higher than level load mark?

It is important never to overload a skip, as you risk being required to take out excess waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as materials could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please ensure that you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full and you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

If I want a skip on the road in Newcastle-under-Lyme, will I need a permit?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a residential job, then your driveway will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Newcastle-under-Lyme. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t have to worry. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will take care of everything.

Which skip sizes have got a drop door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you operate a company in Newcastle-under-Lyme and need to get rid of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Can I throw electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods must be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Will you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to provide skips to both domestic and industrial customers across Staffordshire and anywhere else within the UK.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What skip sizes can you supply?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also provide 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

When will the skip be delivered to me?
