Bearsden Skip Hire FAQs

What are the different skip sizes available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Bearsden, you will have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for household clearances including large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For further details about the various capacities available, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bearsden?

This depends on the size you require and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Bearsden?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you will need plenty of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro containers can only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bearsden?

Generally, it is possible to have the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you must get approval from your local council in Bearsden, which is called a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Do all skips have a drop door?

For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, however they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic times.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.

Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

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

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

Can I throw all types of waste in the skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that may come from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most typical things which we collect in our skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various other household items.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges, monitors or washing machines for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Do you deliver skips across Dunbartonshire?

Indeed, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Dunbartonshire, such as Bearsden, Milngavie, Bishopbriggs and Clydebank. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are great for a multitude of residential and industrial projects. They are the largest sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.

What happens to the waste once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

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

No, you must only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to take away the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
