Stanhope Skip Hire FAQs

Will you deliver to other areas in Durham?

We provide a UK wide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Stanhope, Annfield Plain, Durham, Chester-le-Street or another site in Durham, we are able to help.

What happens to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

How do I hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the road). After that, select the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Stanhope on the date you have chosen.

What is the cost of skip hire in Stanhope?

Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Stanhope. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip situated on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Stanhope?

Generally, it will be possible to get a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you have got to have permission from your local council in Stanhope, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?

If you manage a business in Stanhope and need to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.

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

Before hiring your skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of waste materials you intend to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you could discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to throw out building and construction waste, including bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

What skip sizes do you supply?

We are able to provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Stanhope companies which have a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are fantastic for a wide variety of household and business tasks. They are the biggest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and bricks.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier also.

Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

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

You don’t need to be at home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being in whenever the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that the skip is dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually provide a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (for example a road), you must obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic periods.

Will a skip hire company from Stanhope deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

Can I fill my skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will have to empty any rubbish above the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you choose the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be pleased to help.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods such as tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.

Other areas covered include Annfield Plain, Durham, Chester-le-Street, Stanley, Tow Law, Willington, Bishop Auckland and Sedgefield.
