Findochty Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Findochty?

We work with a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to ensure they fulfill the high standards we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. These objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Providing we are able to access where you need it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
In case you are not likely to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the driveway. Or you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, it is important to check that the type of waste you want to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include household goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, like bricks, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include electrical items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
How much does skip hire in Findochty cost?
Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Findochty. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.
Do you deliver skips across Banffshire?
Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations throughout Banffshire, including Findochty, Cullen, Dufftown and Charlestown of Aberlour. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can generally hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can normally offer you a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (for example a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What skip sizes have got a drop 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 disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop down door, however they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Findochty?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, choose the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Findochty on the date you have selected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Findochty?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on private land, you will save some money.
What is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building and demolition projects. There are typically two sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, like dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you may be asked to remove any contents higher than the level load line. This also means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be glad to help.

What is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for domestic tasks like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
