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

It is essential to not overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you may be asked to take off the excess rubbish. However safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

The vast majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical products like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

How much will skip hire in Stonehaven cost?

Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Stonehaven. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are great for an array of domestic and business tasks. They are the largest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including dirt, stone and gravel.

If I would like a skip on a road in Stonehaven, will I need a permit?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your company premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save some money.

Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?

You can put a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden work is permitted also. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in the skip.

There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.

You can’t throw out your freezer, television or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce large quantities of waste materials.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The regular hire term is 2 weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

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

You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being in when the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip is dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
