It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the street or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

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

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

Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a variety of waste streams, which includes timber, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

For Barrhead companies which generate a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Our regular hire time frame is a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can select a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is finished with sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

If you operate a business in Barrhead and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the label implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, which are lifted using chains.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Barrhead?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are carrying out a household project, then a driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Barrhead. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be situated precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Barrhead?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the online order process.

Is it ok to load the skip above the level load line?

You must not load the skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Generally, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
