For more information about our choice of skips, such as measurements and the waste they can be used for, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Carnoustie where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these skips are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic clients can also order them. It is very important consider the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be hired for light waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.

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

It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

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

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop door, though these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

You can throw a wide array of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in a skip.

There are, however, a few things that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risks they can cause.

You cannot throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this material. Please 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 managed recycling centre.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Carnoustie?

We have built our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your delivery address to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Carnoustie.

After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the order as soon as your order is done!

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Carnoustie?

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

How fast can you deliver a skip in Carnoustie?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Carnoustie the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will provide you with various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic goods such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for construction projects. There are usually two different sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, such as earth, concrete and stone.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Will you deliver skips across Angus?

Of course, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations across Angus, including Carnoustie, Monifieth, Montrose and Kirriemuir. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

You must not fill a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to remove the extra rubbish prior to it being collected.

If I would like a skip on the road in Carnoustie, will I need to get a permit?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you have got to get authorisation from the local authority in Carnoustie, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should know before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Carnoustie?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
