Redcar Skip Hire FAQs
How do I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your address to look at the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Redcar. Choose which size you want to order, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on your own property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
As soon as your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you must obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Our regular hire term will be 2 weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when the skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being home when the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip is dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
Will you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations across North Yorkshire, such as Redcar, Boroughbridge, Norton-on-Derwent and Thornaby-on-Tees. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What will happen to my waste when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
If I would like a skip on a road in Redcar, will I need a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a residential project, then the drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Redcar. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of large volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these containers are hired for industrial uses. Having said that, household customers can also use them. It is essential to look at the area they occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up above this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
What is the cost of skip hire in Redcar?
The cost of hiring a skip in Redcar depends on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What sort of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste which can come from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Some of the most typical things that we find in skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, cabinets, baths, and other household items.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electronic items (tumble dryers, monitors and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to abide by a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
How many different skip sizes are available?
This site offers a complete range of skip capacities to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the various skip sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags

What is classed as being a builders skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to discard weighty building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your loft, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.
Is it possible to get a skip with a drop door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electronic objects including TVs, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
Other areas covered include Boroughbridge, Norton-on-Derwent, Thornaby-on-Tees, Easingwold, Kirkbymoorside, Settle, Filey and York.
