What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to dispose of significant volumes of waste. Generally, these type of skips are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. You will need to consider the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for lightweight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and rubble.
Will a Auchterarder skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These include small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Auchterarder?
Preferably, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. If you are doing a domestic task, then a driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Auchterarder. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
Is it okay to load up the skip higher than level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You must only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take off the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
Am I able to put electronic items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic items including tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
How can I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the road). After that, pick the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Auchterarder on the date you have chosen.
What will happen to the waste?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, including metal, paper, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can usually have your skip for as many as 14 days from the delivery date. You may give a chosen pick up date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over busy periods.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest option which you can use for heavy waste matter including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small household tasks.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we can take care of everything.
When you are not likely to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular part of the driveway. Or you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Can I put all types of rubbish in a skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, you must make sure that the kind of waste materials you wish to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to discard building and construction waste, like bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from any general waste.

Which size skips can have a drop down door?

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
