Alva Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Alva?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

How do I order a skip?

We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Alva. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you need your skip delivered. Then you can make payment with the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to verify your order once your order is complete!

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.

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

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.

On the other hand, if this is not possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will handle the rest.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Alva?

We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to make sure they fulfill the high principles we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Am I allowed to load my skip higher than level load mark?

It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as materials could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have further rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?

You can fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, when you are using your skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or top soil, the biggest size you could use is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste.

What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Alva where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are fantastic for numerous household and industrial tasks. These are the biggest sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste like garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Will the skip have a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop door makes loading waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials like soil or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects like household furniture easier too.

Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this gives you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like computers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and television sets. Electronic products can’t be discarded in your skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
