Tayport Skip Hire FAQs

Can you deliver to other areas in Fife?

Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to both residential and industrial customers throughout Fife and anywhere else within the UK.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can usually have your skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy periods.

Is it ok to load the skip above the side?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to remove any materials higher than the level load mark. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you select the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be happy to help.

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

It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.

The same thing goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs 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 trips to your local recycling centre.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport large quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for commercial applications. Having said that, residential clients can also use them. It is essential to take into account the space they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and rubble.

Can I throw away electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, because electrical products such as old televisions, fridges, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

What size skips will have a drop door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are fantastic for a multitude of domestic and business tasks. They are the biggest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as garden soil, stone and concrete.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tayport?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

How much does skip hire in Tayport cost?

The price of getting a skip in Tayport is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

We work with a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

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. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted journey.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I put all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that may result from garden work, construction work and property clearances.

Some of the most frequent items that we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, sinks, and other household items.

There are also some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical products (fridges, televisions and computers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them has to abide by a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
