Below are some of the common questions we have received with regards to our skip hire and recycling services.
Bellshill Skip Hire FAQs
Which size skips can have a drop door?
For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
Can I throw away electrical items in my skip?
Electrical objects like televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How do I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the street). Next, pick the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bellshill on the day you have selected.
If I require a skip on a road in Bellshill, will I need a permit?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic job, then your drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Bellshill. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Do you deliver to other areas in Lanarkshire?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you need skip hire in Bellshill, Biggar, East Kilbride, Carluke or another location in Lanarkshire, we can help.
How long will it take to get a skip in Bellshill?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be used by residential clients too. Having said that, you will need lots of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, these containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste which will come from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Some of the most frequent items that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, as well as other household items.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges and freezers, televisions and washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must follow an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than level load line?
No, you are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, including metal, plastics, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Bellshill and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How much will skip hire in Bellshill cost?
This depends upon the skip size you want and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial building and demolition materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the garage, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We are able to provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Bellshill firms which produce a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for domestic work such as modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
