Coupar Angus Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be hired to dispose of heavy building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
A builders skip is great for a number of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the garage, these large skips are often the most affordable option available.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can typically have a skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can give a chosen pick up date when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic times.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.
What will happen to the waste?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What can I put in my skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is essential to check that the sort of waste materials you wish to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, such as timber, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that produce large quantities of waste.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What is the cost of skip hire in Coupar Angus?
Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Coupar Angus. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip located on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Coupar Angus?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are carrying out a domestic job, then your drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Coupar Angus. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for building waste, including soil and rubble. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Do I have to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in your skip. This can include such things as printers, hobs, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic products can’t be thrown in the skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Do you deliver to other areas in Perth and Kinross?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Coupar Angus, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Perth and Kinross. With the help of a network of local and national waste management businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Coupar Angus, Perth or Crieff, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load mark?
It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded container will be unsafe, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please be sure you order a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Who will deliver my skip?
