Broxburn Skip Hire FAQs

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you will want lots of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, these containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Broxburn?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (such as a highway), you will need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.

The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products like tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Will you deliver to other areas in West Lothian?

Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can offer skips to both household and industrial customers throughout West Lothian and anywhere else in the UK.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips come in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the cost of skip hire in Broxburn?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Broxburn, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we provide in your location and how much each option costs to order. If your skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Broxburn?

This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The normal hire term is two weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is full sooner than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.

What can I put in my skip?

You are able to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes including rubble or soil, the biggest size you could get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

How can I order a skip?

Hiring 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 view all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Broxburn. Select which size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be positioned on your own property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?

You should not fill up your skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you might be asked to take off any excess waste prior to it being collected.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Broxburn where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip available from skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Having a skip that has a drop door helps make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip that is used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option which you can use for heavy materials including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
