Rothes Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are great for numerous residential and commercial tasks. They are the biggest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and gravel.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Do you deliver to other areas in Moray?

Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations throughout Moray, such as Rothes, Lossiemouth, Forres and Burghead. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Rothes?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to secure authorisation from your local authority in Rothes, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Can I put electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old televisions, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.

What sizes do skips come in?

We provide a full selection of skip capacities to domestic and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the various sizes available, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags

  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips that are used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste materials.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

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

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, though these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is delivered.

What types of waste can you dispose of in a skip?

You are able to throw a variety of waste into your skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.

There are, however, some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risks they can cause.

You can’t get rid of your freezer, television or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from your normal waste.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this material. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, like metal, cardboard, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to handle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

How do I order a skip?

Hiring a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to view the range of skips we can deliver to Rothes. Select the size you would like to order, and confirm if it will be positioned on your own property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.

When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Can I load the skip higher than level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will then have to remove any contents above the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to order the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you are not sure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Rothes?

This depends on the size you will need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Rothes and the rest of the country. Each of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we can take care of everything.

In case you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, simply let us know when ordering, and we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
