Whitley Bay Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Whitley Bay and want to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.
Can you deliver to other areas in Tyne and Wear?
Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to locations throughout Tyne and Wear, including Whitley Bay, Sunderland, Newcastle and Tynemouth. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What skip sizes do you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Whitley Bay, you have various options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them great for house clearances including large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
To get more information regarding the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Can I put electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This can include things like printers, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and televisions. Electronic products can’t be thrown in your skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
No, you must only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
How big is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest option that can be used for hefty waste matter such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The regular hire time frame is 14 days from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Whitley Bay?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Whitley Bay. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly assessed to guarantee they meet the high principles we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
How much will skip hire in Whitley Bay cost?
This depends upon the skip size you require and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that will result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most typical things that we collect in our skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various household products.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electrical goods (refrigerators, TVs and printers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them must comply with an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
If you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, though they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
However, when this isn’t achievable, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when making your order, and then we will handle everything.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we endeavour to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Whitley Bay?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to receive permission from your local authority in Whitley Bay, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your road permit, and you should be aware before booking that getting the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Whitley Bay?
Hiring a skip in Whitley Bay with us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
