Rothbury Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

If I need a skip on a road in Rothbury, will I need to get a permit?

If possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a domestic project, then a drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Rothbury. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Can you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Rothbury, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Northumberland. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that generate significant amounts of waste materials.

What can I put in the skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you are able to discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, like old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from any general waste.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are perfect for numerous residential and industrial tasks. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you will need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

For anybody who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop door, though they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.

Where will the rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

When you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Rothbury where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things like printers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and monitors. Electrical objects can’t be discarded in your skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Can I load my skip higher than the level load mark?

It is vital to not overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you may be required to remove the surplus waste. However safe you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

Other areas covered include Ponteland, Morpeth, Cramlington, Blyth, Haltwhistle, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Bedlington and Alnwick.
