Pittenweem Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a builders skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to discard substantial building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a number of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the shed, these substantial containers are usually the most affordable choice available.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Pittenweem?

Normally, it is possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you need to have approval from the local authority in Pittenweem, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to take out excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container can be dangerous, as waste could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.

Can I throw electrical products in the skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old electronic waste products in your skip. This includes things such as printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. Electronic products can’t be discarded in your skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Pittenweem?

The cost of getting a skip in Pittenweem depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Mostly, these containers are hired for business applications. Having said that, residential clients may also use them. You will need to consider the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.

Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being home whenever the skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the driver can be given full access and that your skip is located precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

The majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.

What can I put in my skip?

It is possible to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip will depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste including stone or dirt, the largest size you can get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
