Alloa Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep a skip for?
Generally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop door can make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste such as soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial size skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
Will you deliver skips across Clackmannan?
Certainly, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas throughout Clackmannan, including Alloa, Clackmannan, Dollar and Tillicoultry. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Alloa?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Alloa, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each size will cost to order. If your skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.
Having said that, if this is not feasible, you do not need to stress. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and we will handle the rest.
What can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, some materials that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risk they can cause.
You can’t throw out your freezer, television or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Feel free to contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Alloa?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to an array of residential and industrial tasks. They are the largest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste such as soil, stone and concrete.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in the skip?
Electrical products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods have to be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

What happens to the waste?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
You must not fill up your skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being collected.
How long does it take to get a skip in Alloa?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the order process.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Alloa businesses with a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size provided by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
