Annan Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We provide a complete selection of skip capacities to residential and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the various skip sizes available, with a rough guide to how much waste each skip is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Is it okay to fill the skip above the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will be asked to remove any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This also means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or another object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you choose the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you need. We would be happy to help.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate large volumes of waste materials.

Will you deliver to other areas in Dumfries?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Annan, Sanquhar, Moffat, Langholm or any other area in Dumfries, we are able to help.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Our normal hire term is two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, let us know, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.

We will usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Where does the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into several different waste types, including wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered objects like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items need to be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Will a skip hire company from Annan deliver my skip?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we use an extensive network of approved businesses. These can range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this is not possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply let us know when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

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

Normally, it is possible to get a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you will need to have approval from the local council in Annan, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Annan?

The price of hiring a skip in Annan depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip is the most popular skip that is used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

What sort of rubbish am I allowed to throw in a skip?

You are able to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or top soil, the biggest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Using a skip which has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials such as soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky items like household furniture much easier too.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
