Crail Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you may have to empty any contents over the level load line. This also means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you need. We will be happy to help.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.

Having said that, when this isn’t possible, you do not need to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.

Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, cookers, tumble dryers, refrigerators and televisions. Electrical products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers also. Having said that, you will require a lot of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, these containers can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of rubbish into the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden work is permitted also. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.

There are, however, some materials that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they might cause.

You cannot throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous elements in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal waste.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Please get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential 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 Crail?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Then, choose the day you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Crail on the day you have selected.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Crail?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

Which size skips have got a door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

What skip sizes do you deliver?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally 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 waste, which is great for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 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 option for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and stone. But they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can normally have your skip for as many as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You can give a chosen pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will plan your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy times.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a number of waste streams, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible.
