Brechin Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The normal hire time frame will be 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can select a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.

What sort of rubbish can you get rid of in a skip?

You can load your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip would depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you are using the skip for heavy building waste like stone or top soil, the biggest size you could use is an 8 yard skip.

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

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for larger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Brechin companies which produce a significant amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Should you need some help deciding which size skip you need, have a look at our useful skip size comparison.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Brechin?

The price of getting a skip in Brechin depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you want to have a skip on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What will happen to the rubbish?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste materials, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that produce significant volumes of waste materials.

Can I load my skip higher than the top?

You must not fill up your skip past the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe to move, and you could be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Brechin?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, choose the day you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Brechin on the day you have selected.

What size is a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest size that you can use for hefty materials such as dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in when it is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

Having said that, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Can you deliver skips across Angus?

Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Angus and elsewhere in the UK.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Brechin?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Brechin. We employ a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to make sure they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

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

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old TVs, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
