Kintore Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Kintore?

Usually, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to get this done, you need to get approval from your local council in Kintore, which is called a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.

How can I order a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Kintore with us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you want and then input a handful of details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Can I throw electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered products like washing machines, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Kintore?

Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Kintore. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Kintore?

Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Is it okay to load the skip above the top?

It is vital never to overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you may be asked to remove the excess waste. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore prohibited.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, concrete and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that generate large volumes of waste.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sort of rubbish can I throw in a skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to check that the sort of waste materials you intend to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you can discard in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like wood, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from general waste.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually have the skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy periods.

Do you deliver skips across Aberdeenshire?

In addition to delivering our range of skips to Kintore, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Aberdeenshire. With the help of our network of local and national skip companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Kintore, Oldmeldrum or Westhill, we have got you covered.

Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being in when your skip is delivered means that you can ensure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, when you can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Kintore, you have several options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small home clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them great for house tidy ups involving large objects like household furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

For additional details about the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for household work including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
