How large is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for domestic jobs including small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building jobs, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest size that can be used for heavy waste like dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Auchtermuchty?
Normally, it is possible to get a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you need to have approval from the local authority in Auchtermuchty, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
Can I put electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items like old TVs, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Our normal hire period is 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can let us know a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.
We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Auchtermuchty firms which produce a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Auchtermuchty and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, though these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
Am I allowed to load the skip above the top?
It is vital never to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be asked to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Auchtermuchty where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
However, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and we will handle the rest.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can typically offer you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (such as a street), you must get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Can I put all types of rubbish in the skip?
Before getting your skip, you must check that the type of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, such as old bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Auchtermuchty?
The cost of hiring a skip in Auchtermuchty depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
