Alyth Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What happens to the rubbish?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, such as metal, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

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

Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a residential job, then your drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or other public property in Alyth. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these skips are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. You should look at the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Alyth?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a fee for a wasted journey.

Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?

In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What things can I put in the skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of many different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and handling numerous materials produced from building work, garden projects and home clearances. A few examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste materials are generally accepted, and therefore whether you need to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and things you throw into the skip will vary depending on which size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to get rid of soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire would be the 8 yard skip.

What kind of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few items which you will not be able to dump in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products contain hazardous materials that may be damaging to the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do you deliver skips across Perth and Kinross?

Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can offer skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Perth and Kinross and elsewhere within the UK.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are fantastic for numerous types of residential and industrial tasks. These are the biggest skips that can be used for hefty builders waste including garden soil, stone and concrete.

Will a skip hire company from Alyth deliver my skip?

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical items such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Alyth?

Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Alyth. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip situated on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The standard hire term is 14 days from your date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is full earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can I fill the skip higher than the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will probably have to remove any items over the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to order the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be glad to help.

What size skips can you provide?

Skips are available in a selection of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
