Banff Skip Hire FAQs

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

If I need a skip on a road in Banff, will I need a permit?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you will have to get permission from your local authority in Banff, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

What sizes do skips come in?

Our company offers a complete selection of skip sizes to household and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different sized skips available, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

For more information about our selection of skips, like measurements plus the waste they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential customers too. However, you will want lots of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, these skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be located exactly where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t have to worry. Just let us know when placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What can I put in my skip?

You may use a skip to dispose of a variety of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing a wide variety of materials generated from construction jobs, garden projects and property tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste types include things like:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of materials will be permitted, and therefore whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you throw into the skip can vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size you would be permitted to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are several items which you will not be allowed to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products include hazardous materials which can cause harm to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, and so they must be discarded separately under UK law.

A few of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just what 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 choice to deal with many tasks.

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

Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.

Is it okay to load my skip above level load mark?

It is vital not to overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is not allowed.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can typically have your skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during busy times.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop down door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much will skip hire in Banff cost?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Banff. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

With the help of our network of regional and national skip businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are fantastic for an array of domestic and business projects. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and concrete.
