Newton Aycliffe Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, as electronic items like old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Newton Aycliffe?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can typically offer a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a highway), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.

Will a skip hire company from Newton Aycliffe deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Newton Aycliffe and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials like garden soil and concrete, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

What things can I put in the skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish which will result from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most frequent things that we find in skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and other household products.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. For example, any electronic objects (fridge freezers, monitors or printers for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them has to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Will you deliver to other areas in Durham?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Newton Aycliffe, Durham, Bishop Auckland, Stanley or any other location in Durham, we can help.

Is it ok to fill up my skip above the level load line?

No. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

How do you order a skip in Newton Aycliffe?

Hiring a skip in Newton Aycliffe with us is very easy. Choose the skip size you need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into various waste types, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means you can ensure the driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, in the event you can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Newton Aycliffe?

Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a residential project, then the driveway will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge or other public property in Newton Aycliffe. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Newton Aycliffe?

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Newton Aycliffe. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for construction projects. There are usually two skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, including earth, concrete and stone.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

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

If you run a business in Newton Aycliffe and need to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are lifted using chains.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Other areas covered include Durham, Bishop Auckland, Stanley, Darlington, Tow Law, Seaham, Consett and Stockton-on-Tees.
