Willington Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste in my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste streams, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What types of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?
A skip can be used to discard many different types of waste. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and property clearances. Examples of permitted waste products include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
Many waste types are generally permitted, and therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you throw into the skip can vary based on which size skip you chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size container you would be able to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t put in the skip?
There are a few waste materials which you will not be able to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods include hazardous components which could cause harm to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
Some examples of the products which are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
If I need a skip on a road in Willington, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private land, you will save some money.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a company in Willington and wish to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic products including old TVs, freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
Can you deliver skips across Durham?
Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across Durham, such as Willington, Newton Aycliffe, Seaham and Billingham. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Which skip sizes can have a drop down door?
In general, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once 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 get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Willington?
We can normally supply skips to Willington the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform will provide you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will then have to remove any items over the level load mark. This also means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you choose the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this isn’t possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, rubble and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Willington?
The price of getting a skip in Willington will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you want to have your skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How do you order a skip in Willington?
Ordering a skip in Willington with us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you will need and input a handful of details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential jobs including small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Other areas covered include Newton Aycliffe, Seaham, Billingham, Ferryhill, Spennymoor, Crook, Stanley and Peterlee.
