Pitlochry Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in a skip.
However, there are a few items that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they could trigger.
You can’t get rid of your freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Please email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.
However, when this isn’t possible, you do not have to stress. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and then we will handle everything.
Can I load up my skip above the side?
It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please ensure that you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
Can you deliver skips across Perth and Kinross?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Pitlochry, Kinross, Alyth, Crieff or any other area in Perth and Kinross, we can help.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This can include such things as laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in your skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Pitlochry?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you will have to get authorisation from your local council in Pitlochry, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Pitlochry, you have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small home clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household clearances involving large items like furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further information about the various skip sizes offered, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers also. Having said that, you will want a good amount of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro containers should only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
Will a Pitlochry skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a charge for a wasted journey.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste streams, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when choosing a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is the cost of skip hire in Pitlochry?
The cost of getting a skip in Pitlochry depends on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you want to have the skip on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

First, type in your delivery postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Pitlochry.

What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction jobs. There are typically two different sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition materials, like soil, concrete and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
