Stanley Skip Hire FAQs

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and construction projects, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the largest option that can be used for heavy waste materials like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

When will my skip be delivered?

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

What will happen to the waste?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the different waste materials, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We provide a whole range of skip capacities to domestic and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the various skip sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to how much waste each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags

Will you deliver to other areas in Durham?

Along with delivering skips to Stanley, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Durham. By utilising our network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Stanley, Spennymoor or Peterlee, we have got it covered.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the level load line?

No, you are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you can be told to take away the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

What size is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip may be the best option. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, according to what sizes they provide.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Am I able to put electronic 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 get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric products such as washing machines, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

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

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish which will come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.

Among the most typical things that we find in our skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household objects.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (tumble dryers, monitors and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them needs to abide by a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

If I want a skip on the road in Stanley, will I need to get a permit?

In most cases, it will be possible to get a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you will need to get consent from your local council in Stanley, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Stanley, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each size will cost to hire.

Since we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, household clients may also use them. You should think about the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and hardcore.

How do I order a skip?

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 public property (like the street). After that, choose the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Stanley on the date you have selected.

Which skip sizes can have a door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door can make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials like soil and rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you want it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.

However, if this is not achievable, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and we will handle everything.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The regular hire time frame will be 14 days from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busy times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Spennymoor, Peterlee, Wolsingham, Ferryhill, Consett, Seaham, Newton Aycliffe and Billingham.
