Bishopbriggs Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is known as a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for residential work like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Can you deliver to other areas in Dunbartonshire?

Yes, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Dunbartonshire, including Bishopbriggs, Dumbarton, Clydebank and Cumbernauld. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?

The majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like furniture.

How long will it take to get a skip in Bishopbriggs?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (like a highway), you need to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

It is essential never to overload a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overload your skip, you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish. However safe you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is prohibited.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The regular hire time frame will be 14 days from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can select a pick up date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible at busy times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

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

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the driver can be given full access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How much will skip hire in Bishopbriggs cost?

We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your town and how much each one costs to hire. If the skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.

Will a skip hire company from Bishopbriggs deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.

How big is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip ordered across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is great for most building work, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

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

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic items including old televisions, cookers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.

How do I hire a skip online?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Bishopbriggs. Choose the size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What types of waste can I put in a skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of waste types into your skip. This includes wood, tile, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

However, there are some materials that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they might trigger.

You can’t get rid of your fridge freezer, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.

If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

If I want a skip on the road in Bishopbriggs, will I need to have a permit?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a drive or within your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of 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 position the skip on your own property, you will save some money.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Bishopbriggs, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small household clearances and DIY work.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are ideal for household clear ups involving large items such as household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to light waste, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.

For additional information regarding the different sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

What happens to the waste?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Bishopbriggs where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial scale skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce significant quantities of waste.
