Forfar Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you run a company in Forfar and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is important to check that the kind of waste you want to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to 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.
Examples of waste types you can discard in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, such as timber, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from your general waste.
Can you deliver to other areas in Angus?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Forfar, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Angus. Through a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Forfar, Kirriemuir or Montrose, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can access where you need it positioned, we are able to manage everything.
When you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular side of your driveway. Or you may want to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip is dangerous, as materials could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please be sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Forfar?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Forfar?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Forfar. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip placed on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Forfar, you will have numerous options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain 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 common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for household clearances including large items such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For more details about the different sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long does it take to get a skip in Forfar?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Forfar?
In most cases, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have consent from the local council in Forfar, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, like metal, plastics, hardcore and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?
In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This can include such things as computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and televisions. Electrical items can’t be discarded in the skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
How can I order a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Forfar. Choose which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction work. There are typically two sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and rock.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for various other household and business waste disposal tasks.
