Dornoch Skip Hire FAQs

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Electrical objects such as televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric items should be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

Where does the waste go once the skip is collected?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a variety of waste types, such as timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Do you use local skip hire companies in Dornoch?

As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

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

The cost of hiring a skip in Dornoch is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Dornoch firms which have a big volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

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

It usually is a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.

The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might 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 tackle numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of weighty building and demolition materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.

A builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the garden shed, these big containers tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

Can I put all kinds of waste in my skip?

Your skip can be used to discard a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous materials from building jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials will be permitted, and therefore whether you need to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you throw in your skip will vary according to which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like discard top soil and bricks, for example, the largest size you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What type of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several materials that you are not able to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous materials which can harm the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.

Some of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can I load up my skip higher than the side?

It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container can be unsafe, as materials could drop and cause personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please ensure that you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you manage a business in Dornoch and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up using chains.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dornoch?

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

If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private land, you will save some money.

Will you deliver skips across Sutherland?

Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to locations across Sutherland, such as Dornoch, %OTHER1%, %OTHER2% and %OTHER3%. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Dornoch?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to be on public property (like a highway), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.

What size skips can have a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing 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 materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
