Monifieth Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a business in Monifieth and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are picked up using chains.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.

How do I order a skip in Monifieth?

This is the easy part. First, select 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 local authority property (like the road). Next, pick the date you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Monifieth on the day you have chosen.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We offer a whole variety of skip sizes to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the various skip sizes available, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, like metal, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will give you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are great for numerous types of domestic and industrial tasks. They are the largest skip sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste including dirt, rubble and concrete.

Will you deliver to other areas in Angus?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Angus and anywhere else in the UK.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, although these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Monifieth?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on private land, it will save you some money.

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

You don’t have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being there whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the driver is given full access and that your skip can be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

What types of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?

Before you hire a skip, it is essential to check that the sort of rubbish you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include household goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general waste.

Will a skip hire company from Monifieth deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electronic products like old televisions, cookers, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Monifieth?

This will depend on the size you want and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from company to company, based on what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for domestic tasks including modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
