Glenrothes Skip Hire FAQs

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Glenrothes where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.

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

It is very important to not overload a skip, as you risk being asked to take out excess waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded container will be hazardous, as waste could drop and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To avoid this issue, please be sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full and you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

How much will skip hire in Glenrothes cost?

The price of getting a skip in Glenrothes depends on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, since electrical products like old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Do you deliver to other areas in Fife?

Certainly, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations throughout Fife, such as Glenrothes, Burntisland, Leven and Kinghorn. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.

In case you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be positioned on a particular area of the driveway. Or you might need to make sure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips used primarily in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Glenrothes?

Hiring a skip in Glenrothes with us is incredibly easy. Select the skip size you will need and enter a few details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip that is ordered across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition work, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste materials like garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Glenrothes?

This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own land, you will save some money.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do you use local skip hire companies in Glenrothes?

We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Glenrothes and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner businesses are approved and tested to ensure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What can I put in my skip?

A skip can be hired to dispose of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of items from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste types are usually accepted, so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and waste types you discard in the skip will vary according to which size skip you hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and concrete, for example, the largest size container you will be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.

What kind of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few items you will not be permitted to dispose of in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements which may cause damage to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, though these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is supplied.
