Kirkcaldy Skip Hire FAQs

Will you deliver skips across Fife?

Of course, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations throughout Fife, such as Kirkcaldy, Culross, Crail and Leven. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by household customers too. Having said that, you need lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Kirkcaldy?

We can typically deliver skips to Kirkcaldy the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking system provides you with a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to a company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, if you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What skip sizes do you deliver?

We can provide a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Kirkcaldy businesses with a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Kirkcaldy?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

What is the cost of skip hire in Kirkcaldy?

The cost of hiring a skip in Kirkcaldy depends on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can generally keep the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when placing your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

What size skips will have a door?

In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can I fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will have to empty any rubbish over the level load line. This also means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you require. We would be glad to help.

How do you order a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Kirkcaldy through us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you need and input a couple of details about where and when you want your skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical items such as old televisions, refrigerators, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

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

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you have got to secure permission from your local council in Kirkcaldy, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.

What happens to the waste when the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Kirkcaldy where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for heavy waste matter including garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

Your skip may be used to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing numerous items generated from construction work, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials are allowed, and so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and items you discard in the skip will vary based on which size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to discard top soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size you would be permitted to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.

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

There are some items you are not able to throw out in your skip. The reason behind this is that these items contain hazardous elements that may be harmful to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately within UK law.

A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
