Newburgh Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Newburgh?
The price of hiring a skip in Newburgh depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above the side?
It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded container is unsafe, as materials could drop and result in injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please ensure that you hire a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What skip sizes can you offer?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Newburgh, you have several options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For additional details about the various skip sizes offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Can you deliver to other areas in Fife?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you need skip hire in Newburgh, Leven, Dunfermline, Pittenweem or another area in Fife, we are able to help.
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 14 days. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the different waste materials, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

First, enter in your delivery postcode to view all the different skips we are able to deliver to Newburgh. Select which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on private property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.

Can I have a skip which has a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electric items can’t be discarded in your skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste materials.
What things can I put in the skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that will result from garden work, building work and home clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, cupboards, sinks, and various other household objects.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic goods (refrigerators, monitors and laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be hired to dispose of heavy building and construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a number of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the garden shed, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective choice available.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Newburgh?
Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a household task, then a driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Newburgh. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
