Kinross Skip Hire FAQs
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Kinross?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (such as the street). Next, select the day you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Kinross on the day you have chosen.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Kinross?
Our aim is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Kinross. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste materials.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
Typically, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Kinross?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Kinross. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to ensure they satisfy the high standards we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
Can I throw away electronic items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products must be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic products such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
Do you deliver skips across Perth and Kinross?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to both residential and business customers throughout Perth and Kinross and elsewhere in the UK.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips used to get rid of substantial building materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the garage, these big skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
It is essential never to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to move. This means that when you overfill the skip, you could be required to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is prohibited.
What skip sizes can you offer?
We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for more substantial tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Kinross firms with a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I put all sorts of waste in a skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include timber, tile, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are some things that can’t be put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risk they could cause.
You are unable to throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size offered by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Kinross?
We can typically deliver skips to Kinross the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program will give you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need a skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kinross?
Usually, it will be possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must get approval from the local council in Kinross, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What will happen to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste streams, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
