Peterlee Skip Hire FAQs

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the different waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Peterlee?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the road). After that, pick the day you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Peterlee on the date you have selected.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste matter like soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Peterlee?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you must obtain authorisation from the local council in Peterlee, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually have your skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. It is possible to provide a preferred pick up date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic times.

What size is the mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for residential tasks like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip is situated exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

Having said that, if this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and we will take care of the rest.

Will a skip hire company from Peterlee deliver my skip?

As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

What skip sizes do you provide?

We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Peterlee companies which generate a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electronic items including TVs, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects should be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for business use but can be hired by household clients also. Having said that, you should have lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be provided for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.

What waste can I put in my skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.

There are, however, a few things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they could trigger.

You are unable to get rid of your freezer, laptop or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous components in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will probably have to remove any items above the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you select the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you need. We would be happy to help.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
