Bridge of Allan Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing 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 tackle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The normal hire period will be two weeks from your delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can choose a collection date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is full earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.
We can usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to dispose of heavy building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your garage, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the driver is given full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to company premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, in the event you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.
Am I allowed to throw all types of waste in my skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste you wish to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types it is possible to discard in a skip include household goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into several different waste types, such as wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will you deliver to other areas in Stirling and Falkirk?
Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas across Stirling and Falkirk, such as Bridge of Allan, Callander, Grangemouth and Denny. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the top?
It is essential to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is prohibited.
Will a skip hire company from Bridge of Allan deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods like cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bridge of Allan?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to obtain authorisation from the local council in Bridge of Allan, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before booking that getting the licence will often take up to two working days.
Can I get a skip that has a drop door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, although these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Bridge of Allan, you will have multiple options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that 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. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for household clear ups including large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
For further details about the various sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How much will skip hire in Bridge of Allan cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Bridge of Allan is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to transport large volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these type of skips are used for commercial applications. However, residential clients can also order them. You have to take into account the area they take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for light waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.
