Cromarty Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a business in Cromarty and wish to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Cromarty?

Usually, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from the local council in Cromarty, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are fantastic for a multitude of household and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including dirt, rubble and bricks.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered items like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

What things can I put in the skip?

You may use a skip to throw out many different waste types. We are used to picking up and processing lots of items from construction jobs, garden landscaping and home clearances. Some examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste types will be accepted, and therefore whether you need to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you throw in your skip may vary according to the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you will be able to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some waste materials which you will not be permitted to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some products contain hazardous elements which may cause harm to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Some examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Cromarty?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Cromarty, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we provide in your location and how much each option costs to order. If the skip will be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the top?

You must not load the skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be collected.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being there whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip can be located exactly where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the online order process.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do you deliver to other areas in Ross and Cromarty?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to both domestic and commercial customers across Ross and Cromarty and anywhere else within the UK.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The standard hire term will be 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can select a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.

We can usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

What skip sizes do you deliver?

We can offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Cromarty companies which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
