Ryton Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is important to ensure that the sort of rubbish you wish to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could put in a skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of restricted items include electronic goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you could be told to take off the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

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

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for up to 14 days from the delivery date. You are able to provide a preferred pick up date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic times.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ryton?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic project, then a drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you must obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Ryton. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Ryton?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Ryton?

The price of getting a skip in Ryton depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Ryton?

Hiring a skip in Ryton with us is incredibly simple. Pick the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date selected.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several trips to your local recycling centre.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for construction jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, like soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

If you run a business in Ryton and want to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a range of waste types, including wood, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Will a Ryton skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Ryton and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip companies are verified and tested to guarantee they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old electrical waste products in a skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in a skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

Do you deliver skips across Tyne and Wear?

Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to domestic and business customers across Tyne and Wear and elsewhere in the UK.
