Culross Skip Hire FAQs

Can I throw electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electrical products such as old TVs, refrigerators, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

Will you deliver to other areas in Fife?

Indeed, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout Fife, such as Culross, Ladybank, Newport-on-Tay and Lochgelly. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.

The same thing goes if you 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.

However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What sort of rubbish can I throw in a skip?

Before ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of rubbish you intend to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you may put in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like timber, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.

Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.

How do you hire a skip?

Ordering a skip in Culross with us is very easy. Select the skip size you need and then enter a handful of details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Culross. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to ensure they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers too. Having said that, you will want a good amount of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.

Is it ok to load up the skip above level load mark?

You must not fill up a skip past the level load line. 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 can be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be picked up.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Culross?

Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Culross. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies 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 a skip placed on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

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

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to get authorisation from the local council in Culross, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip which is hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition work, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for hefty waste matter such as dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?

The vast majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

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

How big is the 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 fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We offer a complete variety of skip capacities to household and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various sizes available, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
