Wooler Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport huge volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, household clients can also use them. It is important to take into account the space they will occupy, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.

Will a skip hire company from Wooler deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Wooler and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they match our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

How do I hire a skip in Wooler?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the street). Next, select the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Wooler on the day you have chosen.

Can you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?

Of course, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout Northumberland, including Wooler, Haltwhistle, Berwick-upon-Tweed and Bedlington. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I have to be there when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can access the place you need it located, we are able to take care of everything.

If you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located at a particular part of the property. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.

How much will skip hire in Wooler cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Wooler is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have the skip on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Our standard hire term will be 14 days from your date of delivery. However, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

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

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers used to dispose of heavy construction waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the garden shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective solution available.

Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in the skip?

Your skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials generated from building work, garden projects and home tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste products can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials are allowed, so whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you put in your skip may vary according to the size skip you hired. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to get rid of top soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size container you will be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are several waste materials you will not be allowed to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items include hazardous components which may harm the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.

Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than level load line?

It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as objects could drop and result in injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please ensure you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

What will happen to my waste when the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Wooler?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you will need to secure authorisation from your local authority in Wooler, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before booking that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.

Which skip sizes will have a door?

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like household furniture.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Other areas covered include Haltwhistle, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Bedlington, Amble, Blyth, Ashington, Corbridge and Ponteland.
