Buckhaven Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?
No, you must only pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to remove the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How much does skip hire in Buckhaven cost?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Buckhaven, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost you to hire. If your skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered items like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric objects must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The normal hire term will be 14 days from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can provide a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, contact us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases supply skips to Buckhaven the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform offers you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What sort of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are a few things that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risk they may cause.
You can’t get rid of your fridge freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial size skips used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suited to numerous domestic and business tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste including dirt, stone and concrete.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Buckhaven?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.

Do all skips have a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as furniture.
Where will my rubbish go when the skip is collected?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Buckhaven where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
