Sedbergh Skip Hire FAQs

What are the different skip sizes available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Sedbergh, you have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them great for household tidy ups involving large items like household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.

For more information about the various capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Where will my rubbish go once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste materials, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic items such as cookers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not fill up a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be picked up.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.

Having said that, if this isn’t possible, you don’t have to stress. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of significant amounts of waste. Predominantly, these containers are hired for business applications. However, domestic customers can also hire them. You have to consider the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be hired for light-weight materials including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and stone.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Sedbergh?

The price of getting a skip in Sedbergh will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you need to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building work. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.

How long does it take to get a skip in Sedbergh?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.

Can you deliver to other areas in Cumbria?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Sedbergh, Barrow-in-Furness, Windermere, Cleator Moor or any other site in Cumbria, we can help.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can in most cases keep your skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred pick up day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished, and then we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic periods.

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?

In general, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How do you hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the street). Then, pick the day you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Sedbergh on the date you have chosen.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.

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

You can’t throw in your freezer, computer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from general waste.

Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Will a Sedbergh skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Sedbergh. We work with a network of both regional and national providers to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to make certain they match the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Sedbergh?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.

Other areas covered include Barrow-in-Furness, Windermere, Cleator Moor, Millom, Ambleside, Cockermouth, Carlisle and Wigton.
