Keith Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use an extensive network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Can I put all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste which can come from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most typical items that we pick up in our skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household products.
There are some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electrical products (fridges and freezers, monitors and cookers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to follow an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Keith, you have several options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also means they are great for house clear ups including large items like household furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For additional information about the various capacities available, such as proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic goods like tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
How much will skip hire in Keith cost?
Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Keith. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip located on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Can you deliver skips across Banffshire?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Keith, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Banffshire. Through our network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Keith, Portsoy or Cullen, we have got it covered.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Keith?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a household job, then a drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Keith. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Can I have a skip with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suitable for a multitude of domestic and business jobs. These are the biggest skips that can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and bricks.
How do you hire a skip in Keith?
Ordering a skip in Keith with us is very easy. Choose the skip size you want and input a few details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Keith where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will give you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will then be asked to remove any items above the level load line. This also means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We would be glad to help.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are mainly for business use but can be hired by residential customers too. However, you will need plenty of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roro containers should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.
