Tynemouth Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip in Tynemouth?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, type in your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Tynemouth. Select the size you want to order, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the best option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price is based on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for residential tasks like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply let us know when making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tynemouth?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Tynemouth?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Tynemouth. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip placed on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded container will be hazardous, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please make sure you hire a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full and you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical items like old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
Am I able to get a skip that has a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like soil and concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Can you deliver to other areas in Tyne and Wear?
We offer a national skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Tynemouth, Ryton, Whickham, Wallsend or another site in Tyne and Wear, we are able to assist.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest containers used to dispose of heavy construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.
A builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the garage, these large containers will often be the most affordable choice available.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for businesses that generate large quantities of waste materials.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have 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 collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for bigger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Tynemouth firms which produce a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What can I put in the skip?
You can throw a wide array of waste into the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in your skip.
There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risks they may cause.
You are unable to get rid of your fridge freezer, computer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
