Jedburgh Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Jedburgh?

This depends upon the skip size you need and whether 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 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

Is it okay to load up my skip above the top?

No. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to take off the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

What sizes do skips come in?

We supply a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Jedburgh businesses which generate a significant volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What will happen to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a number of waste types, including stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste materials.

What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to put in a skip?

A skip can be used to discard many different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling a multitude of materials from building work, garden projects and house clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste materials are allowed, so whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and waste types you throw into your skip will vary depending on which size skip you hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to discard top soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size container you would be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are a few waste materials which you are not allowed to discard in your skip. The main reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials which could cause harm to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately under UK laws.

Examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers used to dispose of weighty building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builders skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the loft, these large containers tend to be the most affordable solution available.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

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

No, you cannot put old electronic waste items in your skip. This includes things like computers, cookers, washing machines, freezers and computer monitors. Electronic items can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

Do you deliver to other areas in Roxburgh, Ettrick and Lauderdale?

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

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you must secure authorisation from your local authority in Jedburgh, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the permit will often take up to two working days.

We work with a network of both local and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high principles we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of 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 collect it as quickly as possible.

Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.

However, if this is not possible, you do not have to worry. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can in most cases supply skips to Jedburgh the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will provide you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Jedburgh?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the street). After that, pick the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Jedburgh on the day you have chosen.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
