Macduff Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of skip hire in Macduff?

Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Macduff. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.

Will a Macduff skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

Do you deliver to other areas in Banffshire?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas across Banffshire, such as Macduff, Findochty, Keith and Portsoy. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Which skip sizes have got a door?

If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, however they are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical items including old TVs, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

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

It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How can I hire a skip online?

Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your postcode to see all the different skips we can deliver to Macduff. Select the size you would like to hire, and confirm if it will be located on private property. Type in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station either in or local to Macduff where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as clay and stone. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household clients also. Having said that, you will want a lot of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, these skips should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip which is ordered in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the largest size that you can use for hefty waste materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the side?

No, you are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

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

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.

Am I able to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which will result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most common things which we collect in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, cupboards, sinks, and various other household items.

There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (fridges, monitors or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
