Thornaby-on-Tees Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Thornaby-on-Tees?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to secure authorisation from your local authority in Thornaby-on-Tees, which is called a permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction work. There are typically two skip sizes that may be classed as 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 amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Do you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Thornaby-on-Tees, Easingwold, Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Masham or another location in North Yorkshire, we can help.
Is it ok to load up my skip higher than the side?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you may be told to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
What happens to the rubbish?
The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the best option. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household tasks like small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Thornaby-on-Tees firms with a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What can I put in the skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste materials you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, including timber, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electronic products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that produce large amounts of waste materials.
How much does skip hire in Thornaby-on-Tees cost?
Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Thornaby-on-Tees. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip situated on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your address to check out all the different skip sizes we can supply in Thornaby-on-Tees.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Our simple online booking platform will provide you with a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes things like laptops, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and tv sets. These products can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
For anybody who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, though they are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is supplied.
