Falkland Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a company in Falkland and wish to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, that are picked up using chains.
Will a Falkland skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Falkland. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly assessed to guarantee they meet the high standards we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). After that, choose the date you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Falkland on the date you have chosen.
How much will skip hire in Falkland cost?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Falkland. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
Can I put electrical items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items including washing machines, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What size skips can you supply?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Falkland, you have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that 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 popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are great for house tidy ups involving bulky items like furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or stone.
For more details about the various sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
It is possible to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or garden soil, the biggest size you can get is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than the side?
It is very important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please make sure you hire a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Where will the rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, including soil, plastics, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
What skip sizes can have a door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, however these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Falkland?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you must secure permission from your local authority in Falkland, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.
Do you deliver skips across Fife?
Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to domestic and industrial customers across Fife and elsewhere in the UK.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are great for an array of household and industrial projects. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, stone and gravel.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t achievable, you do not have to stress. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will handle everything.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.
