Bo’ness Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

How much does skip hire in Bo’ness cost?

This will depend on the skip size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products such as old TVs, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.

If I require a skip on a road in Bo’ness, will I need to get a permit?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to receive authorisation from your local authority in Bo’ness, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to two working days.

When will my skip be delivered?

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

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of weighty construction waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the loft, these big containers tend to be the most affordable solution available.

Which size skips can have a drop door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these represent the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these containers are hired for business purposes. However, household clients can also use them. You should look at the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and rubble.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Our regular hire period will be a fortnight from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can choose a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Am I able to put all types of rubbish in my skip?

You are able to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are allowed too. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in your skip.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risk they can cause.

You can’t get rid of your freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous materials in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from your general waste.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Please email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home at the time it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this is not possible, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the top?

You should not fill your skip past the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being picked up.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
