Wallsend Skip Hire FAQs

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Wallsend?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most 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 the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted journey.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Am I able to put all types of waste in my skip?

You can put a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in your skip.

However, there are some things that you cannot put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they can trigger.

You are unable to throw in your freezer, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this material. Feel free to contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Can you deliver skips across Tyne and Wear?

Of course, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout Tyne and Wear, including Wallsend, Whitburn, Houghton-le-Spring and Whitley Bay. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Wallsend where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Wallsend. We employ a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to be sure they meet the high expectations we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wallsend?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own land, you will save some money.

Is it ok to load my skip above the level load mark?

It is essential not to overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overload your skip, you may be required to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is therefore prohibited.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a massive skip used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be hired by domestic clients also. Having said that, you will require plenty of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

What is the cost of skip hire in Wallsend?

Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Wallsend. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip located on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to discard substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.

A builders skip is great for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the shed, these substantial containers tend to be the most affordable choice available.

Can I put electronic items in the skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electrical items like old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can in most cases have the skip for up to 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and then we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over busy periods.

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

It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also provide 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
