Ladybank Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Ladybank?

The cost of getting a skip in Ladybank is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have the skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What will happen to my waste when the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Ladybank where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

If I would like a skip on a road in Ladybank, will I need to have a permit?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to secure permission from the local authority in Ladybank, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

Is it ok to load the skip above the level load line?

It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and lead to injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to hire a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have more rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Ladybank. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to guarantee they match the high expectations we require when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Our standard hire time frame will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, when you book your skip, you can choose a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, tell us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can you deliver skips across Fife?

We provide a national skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Ladybank, Dunfermline, Falkland, Glenrothes or any other area in Fife, we can assist.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like furniture.

What types of waste can you put in a skip?

Prior to hiring a skip, you must make sure that the type of waste materials you intend to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, like old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from your general waste.

What size skips do you supply?

Skips are offered in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, they are the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and demolition projects. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, such as earth, concrete and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip in Ladybank with us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you want and input a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be hired by household clients too. Having said that, you need a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, these skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Ladybank?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.

Am I allowed to throw electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, because electronic products like old televisions, freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your order, and then we will handle everything.
