North Berwick Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes do you offer?

We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For North Berwick companies which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop down door can make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like soil or concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky items such as furniture easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in North Berwick?

Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in North Berwick. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip positioned on the street or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste matter such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to North Berwick where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of large amounts of waste. In most cases, these containers are used for commercial applications. However, household customers can also order them. You will need to consider the space they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for lightweight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and rubble.

Can I dispose of all types of waste in my skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which can result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Among the most typical items that we see in skips include soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cupboards, baths, and various household products.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electronic goods (fridges, monitors and printers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them has to follow a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

It is important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as rubbish could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This can include items like laptops, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. These objects can’t be thrown in a skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the online order process.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, should you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we will manage everything.

When you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular side of the drive. Or you might want to be sure that the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and we will ensure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.

How do I order a skip?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a number 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.

If I need a skip on a road in North Berwick, will I need a permit?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you will have to obtain permission from the local council in North Berwick, which is called a permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
