Burntisland Skip Hire FAQs
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is being delivered, but it does help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be around for the delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Will you deliver to other areas in Fife?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can deliver skips to domestic and commercial customers throughout Fife and anywhere else in the UK.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a whole range of skip sizes to residential and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Burntisland?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted trip.
How long can I keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers used to get rid of substantial building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the garage, these substantial skips are usually the most affordable choice available.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical objects like televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items have to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
What skip sizes will have a drop down door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the top?
You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
How much will skip hire in Burntisland cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Burntisland is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Burntisland?
Usually, it is possible to get a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you must have consent from your local council in Burntisland, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste.
How large is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
It is possible to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip would depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste such as stone or soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
