Leven Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Leven?
Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Leven. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that will come from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we collect in our skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges and freezers, monitors or printers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them must comply with an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
What is the size of a builders skip?
A builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips used to discard weighty building waste materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or soil.
The builders skip is perfect for a wide range of tasks. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the loft, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry driver is given complete access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to your business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things like computers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. These objects can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
How do I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the road). After that, choose the day you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Leven on the day you have chosen.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste. In most cases, these skips are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. It is important to consider the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light-weight materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.
Can I get a skip which has a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door makes filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials such as dirt and concrete, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky objects like furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Will you deliver to other areas in Fife?
Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to residential and business customers across Fife and elsewhere within the UK.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular option for larger sized projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Leven businesses with a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Leven?
We can in most cases supply skips to Leven the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program will provide you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like your skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Will a Leven skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Leven?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a household project, then your driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Leven. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
Can I fill my skip above the level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to remove any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you require. We will be glad to help.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
