Order A Skip

** O'Brien Waste recycling solutions have been bought by Biffa Plc. You can still order skips using the same online Skip Order Form (see link below). Purchase Order Numbers should be raised to Biffa Plc.**


Skips available at the following prices which have been derived through a tender process to offer best value for money:

Removal of General Material (Mixed materials)

(Price excludes VAT)

12yd Skip £156.00
14yd Skip £175.00
16yd Skip £179.88
20yd Skip £300.00


8yd skip** £126.75

**Please note the smaller 8 and 12 cu yd skips are not covered and so can only be used in secured yards or compounds.

Where the skip is required for items all made from one material and it is recyclable, the price of the skip is reduced as there is no separation required by the contractor making recycling cheaper and easier.

Removal of separate waste streams

(Price excludes VAT)

Bricks & Rubble (8yd) £120
Green Waste (8yd) £120
Mixed Wood (8yd) £100
Glass (8yd) £120

If you require a skip for hire you should fill in the skip order form, which gathers all the information required by O Briens for the skip to be delivered.

The key information needed to fill in this form is:

  • Named contact- to be available on the day the skip is collected to sign the Waste Transfer Note
  • Type of skip required- size/type of material for disposal (Note: See below for varied cost)
  • Location for the skip
  • Purchase Order number for payment. This should now be made to Biffa Plc.

The information recorded on this form is then forwarded directly to the contractor.

Skip The same form can be used to inform the contractor when the skip is ready for exchange (swap for a new one) or collection (removal of skip). Alternatively you can contact O'Brien Waste Management on e-mail skips@g-obrien.co.uk or phone 0191 262 2453.

It is preferred that University contractors also order skips from the same company and use the same form to place an order.

If you have any queries on the skip system contact the Sustainability Team at Sustainable.Campus@ncl.ac.uk.
