Lochgelly Skip Hire FAQs
Can I get a skip with a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like furniture.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Lochgelly?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to secure authorisation from your local authority in Lochgelly, which is known as a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
Is it ok to fill up the skip above the top?
It is important never to overload the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overfill the skip, you might be required to remove the surplus waste. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is prohibited.
Will a Lochgelly skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be there when the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip is placed exactly where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if that is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Lochgelly?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will typically provide a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a highway), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered goods like tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
What types of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is important to ensure that the sort of waste you want to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could put in your skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Will you deliver skips across Fife?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to household and industrial customers across Fife and anywhere else in the UK.

You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip that is used throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest option that you can use for hefty waste like dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Lochgelly?
The price of getting a skip in Lochgelly is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you want to have the skip on the road, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into several different waste types, which includes stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by household clients too. However, you will require plenty of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
