We provide skips across Spennymoor and the nearby towns and villages. If you are getting a skip placed on private property (like a driveway), we can generally arrange delivery within 24 hours.

Spennymoor Skip Hire FAQs
Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the side?
You must not fill up your skip past the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being collected.
Do all skips have a drop door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to supply a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Spennymoor firms which have a significant volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can 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 classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and televisions. These products can’t be disposed of in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and demolition 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. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and stone.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted journey.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Spennymoor and want to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Spennymoor?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to obtain permission from your local authority in Spennymoor, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Spennymoor?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). After that, select the date you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Spennymoor on the date you have selected.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Will a skip hire company from Spennymoor deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Spennymoor. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to make sure they match the high expectations we demand with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Spennymoor?
Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Spennymoor. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip situated on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.
Will you deliver to other areas in Durham?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Spennymoor, Barnard Castle, Annfield Plain, Sedgefield or any other area in Durham, we can assist.
What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.
However, there are a few things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible environment or health risks they might cause.
You can not throw in your fridge freezer, computer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from normal waste.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Please email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
