Oldmeldrum Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge amounts of waste. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic clients may also use them. You should think about the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and rubble.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky objects like household furniture much easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
How big is a builders skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of weighty building materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a number of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your attic, these big containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can access where you want it located, we can manage it all.
In case you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your driveway. Or you might want to ensure the skip does not block access to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Oldmeldrum, Ellon, Fraserburgh, Blackburn or another location in Aberdeenshire, we are able to assist.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Oldmeldrum?
Normally, it will be possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you will need to get approval from the local authority in Oldmeldrum, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
What size is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential jobs including small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Is it okay to load the skip above the level load line?
It is essential never to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very dangerous to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. No matter how safe you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is not allowed.
What is the cost of skip hire in Oldmeldrum?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Oldmeldrum, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we offer in your area and how much each size costs to hire. If the skip is going on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things like computers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. These objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that may come from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most common items that we pick up in skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various other household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electronic objects (tumble dryers, TVs and washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this will give you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What will happen to the rubbish?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Oldmeldrum where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Oldmeldrum, you have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest house clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups including large items such as furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for light waste, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the various skip sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
