Broughty Ferry Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Broughty Ferry?

This depends upon the size you require and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

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

If you run a business in Broughty Ferry and wish to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the label implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.

What can I put in the skip?

This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that will result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most frequent items that we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household items.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. For example, any electrical items (fridges and freezers, TVs or computers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must follow an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Am I able to throw electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic items like cookers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Broughty Ferry?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you have got to obtain authorisation from the local council in Broughty Ferry, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before ordering that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

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 2 weeks. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Broughty Ferry and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they match our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Will you deliver to other areas in City of Dundee?

Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations throughout City of Dundee, such as Broughty Ferry, Dundee, %OTHER2% and %OTHER3%. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop down door?

Using a skip with a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials like dirt or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.

The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is vital never to overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you could be asked to remove the excess waste. However secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is prohibited.

How long does it take to get a skip in Broughty Ferry?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is ordered across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for heavy materials such as dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

What will happen to the waste when the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We offer a complete range of skip capacities to domestic and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different sizes offered, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each skip is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
