Leslie Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to access the place you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.
For those who are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
How can I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (such as the street). After that, pick the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Leslie on the day you have chosen.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
How much will skip hire in Leslie cost?
This depends upon the size you require and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What size skips will have a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like dirt and concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items like household furniture easier also.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric items like washing machines, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and by hand into various waste streams, such as soil, plastics, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
Am I able to dispose of all types of waste in a skip?
It is possible to put a variety of waste in the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed also. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in your skip.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risks they can cause.
You are unable to get rid of your fridge, laptop 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 form or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Please email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you manage a business in Leslie and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are lifted using chains.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We provide a complete variety of skip capacities to domestic and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sized skips offered, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How large is a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for domestic tasks including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size is a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suitable for a wide variety of household and business projects. These are the largest skip sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste including dirt, rubble and gravel.
Am I allowed to load up the skip above the top?
You should not fill the skip beyond the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be picked up.
Will a skip hire company from Leslie deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Will you deliver skips across Fife?
Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations across Fife, including Leslie, St Andrews, Falkland and Pittenweem. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Leslie?
In most cases, it will be possible to have the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to get permission from your local authority in Leslie, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
