Prudhoe Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Prudhoe. We work with a network of both local and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to be sure they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, like soil, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
How much will skip hire in Prudhoe cost?
This depends upon the size you want and if you 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 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric goods including cookers, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How big is a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for construction and demolition projects. There are usually two different sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like dirt, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
If you have a company in Prudhoe and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like household furniture.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in a skip?
You can use your skip to get rid of lots of different waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing numerous items produced from building jobs, garden projects and home clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste types include things like:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste materials will be allowed, and therefore whether you wish to throw out metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and items you throw into your skip may vary according to which size skip you have ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to dispose of soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you would be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few materials you are not permitted to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that some products contain hazardous elements which may be harmful to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.
Examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.
How do I order a skip in Prudhoe?
We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your address to see all the different skip sizes we can supply in Prudhoe. Pick the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to confirm the order once your order is complete!
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Prudhoe, you have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold 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 are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for house tidy ups including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to light waste, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or stone.
For further information regarding the various sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Will you deliver skips across Northumberland?
Yes, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations throughout Northumberland, such as Prudhoe, Morpeth, Blyth and Ponteland. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Our regular hire period is 14 days from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You can only pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What size is the mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential tasks like small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
If I require a skip on a road in Prudhoe, will I need to have a permit?
If possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a domestic task, then a drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you must get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Prudhoe. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to access the place you need it delivered, we can take care of it all.
If you are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.
