Dumfries ( dum-FREESS; Scots: Dumfries; possibly from Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Phris) is a market town and former royal burgh within the Dumfries and Galloway council area of Scotland. It is located near the mouth of the River Nith into the Solway Firth. Dumfries is the traditional county town of the historic county of Dumfriesshire. Dumfries is nicknamed Queen of the South. The nickname has also given name to the town’s professional football club. People from Dumfries are known colloquially in Scots language as Doonhamers.
If you’re considering having your skip dropped onto the road or into a parking bay. You will need a permit from your local council. These are an additional charge to your skip hire but fluctuate in price from council to council.
They usually take 3-5 working days to receive from the council even though in some cases it can take a lot longer. In terms of how long you have one for, it can be from 1 day up to a month and can be renewed depending on how long you need them.
They’re very flexible and as long as you don’t need the skip in a hurry is a great way to get your skip delivered wherever you want it!
The price to hire a skip varies depending on the type of rubbish going into the skip and the size of the skip you require. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to pay from £100 up to about £350 for a residential skip in most cases.
Depending on the size of the job your undertaking will determine the size of the skip you require. A general rule of thumb is to divide the number of bin bags of junk you’ll generate by ten. For example, if you think you’ll generate 60 bin bags of waste you will require a 6-yard skip.
Items which are allowed to place in a skip are household items such as wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper, cardboard, garden waste and fabrics. You can also place heavy materials such as bricks, rubble, concrete, stones, metal, pottery and clays.
