Carlisle ( kar-LYLE, KAR-lyle; from Cumbric: Caer Luel;Scottish Gaelic: Cathair Luail) is a bordercity and the county town of Cumbria as well as the administrative centre of the City of Carlisle district in North West England. Carlisle is located at the confluence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril, 10 miles (16 km) south of the Scottish border. Originally in the historic county of Cumberland, it is now the largest settlement in the county of Cumbria, and serves as the administrative centre for both Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council. At the time of the 2001 census, the population of Carlisle was 71,773, with 100,734 living in the wider city. Ten years later, at the 2011 census, the city’s population had risen to 75,306, with 107,524 in the wider city.
If you’re planning on having your skip dropped onto the road or into a parking bay. You will need a permit from your local council. These are an additional charge to your skip hire but vary in price from council to council.
They normally take 3-5 working days to receive from the council though in some cases it can take a lot longer. In terms of how long you have one for, it can be from 1 day up to a month and can be reissued depending on how long you need them.
They’re very flexible and as long as you don’t need the skip in a hurry is a great way to get your skip delivered precisely where you want it!
The price to hire a skip varies depending on the type of junk going into the skip and the size of the skip you require. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to pay from £100 up to about £350 for a residential skip in most cases.
Depending on the size of the project your undertaking will determine the size of the skip you need. A general rule of thumb is to divide the number of bin bags of rubbish you’ll generate by ten. For example, if you think you’ll generate 60 bin bags of waste you will require a 6-yard skip.
Items which are safe to place in a skip are household items such as wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper, cardboard, garden waste and fabrics. You can also place heavy materials such as bricks, rubble, concrete, stones, metal, pottery and clays.
