Inverkeithing Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to throw away electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, as electronic products like old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
What can I put in the skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish which can come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most common things that we pick up in skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, cupboards, baths, as well as other household products.
There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electronic products (fridges, televisions or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Do you deliver skips across Fife?
Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations across Fife, such as Inverkeithing, Methil, Leslie and Burntisland. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much does skip hire in Inverkeithing cost?
This depends on the skip size you will need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Inverkeithing, you will have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them well suited for household clear ups including large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
For more details about the different skip sizes available, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Inverkeithing?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own land, you will save some money.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have the skip for up to 14 days from the delivery date. You can provide a preferred collection day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. Usually, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during hectic times.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Inverkeithing?
We can typically supply skips to Inverkeithing the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system provides you with a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need the skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop door helps make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials such as dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skips can be provided with a drop door, although this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, determined by what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household work including small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Inverkeithing?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Inverkeithing. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential customers as well. However, you will need a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded container is dangerous, as waste could drop and result in injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please be sure you order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suitable for a wide variety of domestic and commercial tasks. They are the biggest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste such as soil, stone and gravel.
