Northallerton Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you want skip hire in Northallerton, Thornaby-on-Tees, Easingwold, Thirsk or another area in North Yorkshire, we can help.
What size is the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household tasks like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste, including garden soil, concrete and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic products like old TVs, fridges, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
How long will it take to get a skip in Northallerton?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
How much will skip hire in Northallerton cost?
This depends upon the size you want and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What types of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that may result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.
Among the most common things that we pick up in our skips include dirt, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various household products.
However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electronic products (fridges, TVs and washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How do I hire a skip in Northallerton?
Ordering a skip in Northallerton through us is very easy. Pick the skip size you will need and then enter a few details about when and where you want the skip delivered. You then 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 selected.
Is it ok to load the skip above the level load line?
It is important to never overload the skip. You must not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the excess waste. No matter how safe you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is not allowed.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the various waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
If I need a skip on a road in Northallerton, will I need a permit?
Normally, it is possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you must have permission from your local council in Northallerton, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
Will a Northallerton skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Northallerton and the rest of the UK. Our partner companies are verified and tested to make sure they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a business in Northallerton and want to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are lifted using chains.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this is not feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Northallerton, you will have several sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them ideal for house tidy ups involving bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For additional information about the different skip sizes available, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically have the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You can provide a preferred pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during hectic periods.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Typically, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful when choosing a large builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
