Fraserburgh Skip Hire FAQs

What happens to the rubbish?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer station either in or local to Fraserburgh where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Do you deliver skips across Aberdeenshire?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Fraserburgh, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Aberdeenshire. By utilising a network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Fraserburgh, Oldmeldrum or Westhill, we have got it covered.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge commercial size skips used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste materials.

How much does skip hire in Fraserburgh cost?

Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Fraserburgh. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the highway or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?

You should not load your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.

What kinds of rubbish am I able to throw in a skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in a skip.

However, there are some items that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they could cause.

You are unable to throw out your fridge, computer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from normal rubbish.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this material. Feel free to contact us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the best solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for domestic tasks including modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are perfect for numerous types of residential and industrial tasks. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste like soil, rubble and concrete.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Fraserburgh?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Fraserburgh. 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 thoroughly vetted to ensure they meet the high principles we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Fraserburgh?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you must receive permission from your local authority in Fraserburgh, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products such as washing machines, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you need 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 present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How can I order a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Fraserburgh with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you will need and then enter a handful of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.
