Below are a few of the common questions we get with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.

Sedgefield Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to throw electrical items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods like washing machines, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Sedgefield?

In most cases, it is possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you need to have approval from the local authority in Sedgefield, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for residential jobs such as modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

The vast majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as furniture.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when you place your order.

Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It may take a little bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.

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

This depends upon the skip size you will need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?

If you manage a business in Sedgefield and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.

What can I put in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we collect in skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, as well as other household items.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic products (fridge freezers, televisions and computers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

Can you deliver skips across Durham?

Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to both household and business customers throughout Durham and anywhere else in the UK.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Sedgefield?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). Then, select the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Sedgefield on the date you have selected.

Will a Sedgefield skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Sedgefield. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide providers to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly vetted to be sure they satisfy the high standards we require in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

What will happen to the rubbish?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Sedgefield where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Is it ok to load up the skip above level load line?

It is important not to overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you could be required to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition work. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to dispose of substantial volumes of construction and demolition materials, like earth, rubble and rock.

Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Other areas covered include Barnard Castle, Consett, Annfield Plain, Wolsingham, Durham, Chester-le-Street, Stockton-on-Tees and Shildon.
