Peebles Skip Hire FAQs

Is it ok to fill up the skip higher than the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you order the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you need. We will be glad to help.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered items like cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What is a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The label stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are ideal for numerous types of domestic and commercial projects. These are the largest sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste like soil, stone and bricks.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Peebles?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to get authorisation from the local authority in Peebles, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing 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, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Will you deliver to other areas in Tweeddale?

Indeed, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas across Tweeddale, such as Peebles, Innerleithen, %OTHER2% and %OTHER3%. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can typically have a skip for up to 14 days from your delivery date. You may provide a chosen pick up date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household tasks including modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates limit access.

Having said that, when this isn’t possible, you do not need to be concerned. Simply let us know when making your order, and we will take care of everything.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a variety of waste streams, such as timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What is the cost of skip hire in Peebles?

This depends upon the skip size you need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Peebles?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

You are allowed to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, when you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes including rubble or top soil, the biggest size you can use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
