Dundee Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Dundee?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a residential project, then a drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Dundee. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.
Will a Dundee skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Dundee. We make use of a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to make sure they meet the high expectations we require with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Dundee, you will have numerous options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them great for house clearances including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.
For additional details about the various capacities offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can normally hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
How long does it take to get a skip in Dundee?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (like a road), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a AM or PM slot.
How much will skip hire in Dundee cost?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Dundee. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste materials. Generally, these type of containers are used for commercial uses. Having said that, household clients can also order them. It is very important consider the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Can you deliver to other areas in City of Dundee?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Dundee, we also deliver to other towns and villages across City of Dundee. By utilising a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Dundee, Broughty Ferry or %OTHER2%, we have got you covered.
Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like furniture.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Can I put electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric items like washing machines, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will be asked to empty any items higher than the level load mark. This means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or another object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you hire the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be happy to help.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
You are able to load your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip depends on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste like stone or garden soil, the biggest size you could get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Dundee?

You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered.
What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suitable for a wide variety of residential and commercial projects. These are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, rubble and concrete.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Dundee where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
