Aberfeldy Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest containers used to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builders skip is great for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the loft space, these big containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like dirt or stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects like furniture much easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips come in a selection of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Aberfeldy?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a residential task, then the driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Aberfeldy. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Aberfeldy?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually give a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (like a highway), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
Do you deliver to other areas in Perth and Kinross?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you want skip hire in Aberfeldy, Pitlochry, Kinross, Alyth or another area in Perth and Kinross, we are able to assist.
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will probably have to remove any items above the level load mark. This means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or another object, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you select the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you need. We would be happy to help.
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that could come from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Among the most common items that we see in skips include soil, timber, tree trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various household items.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electronic goods (fridge freezers, TVs or laptops for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to abide by an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electrical items such as old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and we will handle everything.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers too. Having said that, you will want plenty of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro skips can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over busy periods.
Will a Aberfeldy skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
What will happen to the waste?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into several different waste types, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Aberfeldy?
The cost of hiring a skip in Aberfeldy depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
