Dunfermline Skip Hire FAQs
Can I put electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. These items can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can usually have the skip for as long as two weeks from your delivery date. You can provide a chosen collection date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during busy times.
How much will skip hire in Dunfermline cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Dunfermline, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we offer in your town and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip is going on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for residential work including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip that is ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest option which you can use for hefty waste such as soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then be asked to remove any items higher than the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by domestic clients also. However, you will need a lot of space as these skips vary 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 skips should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Dunfermline?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Dunfermline. Choose which size you wish to hire, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on your own property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Dunfermline?
As we provide a national skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
What size skips do you offer?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Dunfermline, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for household tidy ups including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
For more information regarding the various skip sizes available, such as proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
If I would like a skip on the road in Dunfermline, will I need to get a permit?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you must obtain authorisation from the local authority in Dunfermline, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risk they might cause.
You can’t get rid of your refrigerator, printer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to get in touch for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Will the skip have a drop door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Dunfermline where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
