How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Peterhead?

This depends upon the skip size you require and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest option.

What size skips can you provide?

Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

If you have a business in Peterhead and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.

Which skip sizes will have a drop down door?

When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, however they are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will be asked to empty any items higher than the level load line. This means that you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to hire the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you need. We would be happy to help.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition work, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest option that can be used for heavy waste materials including dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items such as washing machines, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

What happens to the rubbish?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, like metal, cardboard, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Usually, you can have a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that can result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we collect in our skips include soil, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various other household items.

There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electronic items (fridge freezers, televisions and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them must adhere to a completely different process to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is 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 located, we can manage everything.

When you will not be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your drive. Or you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.

No matter what the case might be, provide the details when ordering, and we will ensure the directions are passed on to the delivery driver.

How long does it take to get a skip in Peterhead?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can usually give a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (like a highway), you will need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Peterhead?

In most cases, it is possible to have the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have permission from your local authority in Peterhead, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
