Cowdenbeath Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will take care of it all.

If you are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located on a particular area of the property. Alternatively, you might want to ensure the skip does not prevent use of your garage.

Whatever the case might be, let us know when ordering, and we will ensure your directions are passed on to the delivery driver.

Will you deliver skips across Fife?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to household and industrial customers throughout Fife and anywhere else within the UK.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when hiring a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Where will my rubbish go when the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste streams, such as timber, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Is it okay to load my skip above the side?

You should not load a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be picked up.

Can I throw electronic items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This can include things such as computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and televisions. Electrical products can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip could be just what 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 solution to tackle numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

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

How long can I keep a skip for?

Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

How do you hire a skip?

Hiring a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your address to view the range of skips we can deliver to Cowdenbeath. Choose the size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be delivered on your own property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.

When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cowdenbeath?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Cowdenbeath?

The cost of getting a skip in Cowdenbeath is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What sort of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?

You can throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted too. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.

However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they might cause.

You cannot get rid of your freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous elements in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of significant volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, domestic customers can also hire them. You have to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for light waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.

Will a Cowdenbeath skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we provide a national waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified companies. These vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is ordered across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction work, which is where the label stems from.

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

How long does it take to get a skip in Cowdenbeath?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we can even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the order process.
