Newport-on-Tay Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to throw all kinds of waste in my skip?

You can fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For instance, if you are using your skip for heavy construction waste such as stone or dirt, the biggest size you could use is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Newport-on-Tay?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the order process.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Which skip sizes have a drop door?

Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are perfect for numerous residential and commercial jobs. They are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as soil, rubble and bricks.

What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, like soil, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Newport-on-Tay?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you must obtain permission from your local authority in Newport-on-Tay, which is called a permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in the skip?

Electrical products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects should be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Is it ok to fill the skip above the level load mark?

It is important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as objects could drop and cause personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

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

You don’t need to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given full access and that your skip can be located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during 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 that you tell us when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Newport-on-Tay?

Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Newport-on-Tay. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip located on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a company in Newport-on-Tay and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are picked up using chains.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
