Eyemouth Skip Hire FAQs
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Eyemouth, you will have numerous sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available 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, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are suitable for household tidy ups involving large objects like furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more information about the various skip sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can typically keep your skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Eyemouth?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you need to obtain permission from your local council in Eyemouth, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste types, which includes stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than level load line?
You must not load the skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being picked up.
Can you deliver skips across Berwickshire?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Eyemouth, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Berwickshire. With the help of our network of local and national waste management companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Eyemouth, Coldstream or Duns, we have got you covered.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is hired in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size which can be used for heavy waste materials such as dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Will a skip hire company from Eyemouth deliver my skip?
As we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These can include small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish that will result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things which we collect in skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various other household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electronic items (fridges, monitors or computers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical items including cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.
However, if that isn’t possible, you do not have to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
Will my skip have a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like garden soil or concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Eyemouth?
The cost of hiring a skip in Eyemouth is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers also. Having said that, you need lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, these containers should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.
