Banchory Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the best solution. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for domestic work like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a company in Banchory and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can usually provide a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most popular skip which is used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that can be used for hefty materials including garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
What types of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?
You can fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or dirt, the largest size you can get is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately not, as electrical products like old TVs, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.
Which size skips can have a drop door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I load my skip higher than the top?
You should not load your skip past the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
How much will skip hire in Banchory cost?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Will a Banchory skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Banchory. We work with a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to be sure they meet the high expectations we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste streams, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Banchory?
In most cases, it is possible to get a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you have got to get consent from your local authority in Banchory, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being home when the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the driver is given full access and that the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, for those who can’t be available during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
