Callander Skip Hire FAQs

If I want a skip on a road in Callander, will I need to get a permit?

Usually, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to get approval from the local authority in Callander, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Callander the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program gives you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Callander?

Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Callander. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip located on the street or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical products like cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction jobs. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if hiring a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is placed precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, for those who can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

What can I put in the skip?

Before you hire a skip, you must check that the kind of rubbish you need to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to 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 put in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including wood, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load line?

It is essential not to overload a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you might be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is prohibited.

Will a skip hire company from Callander deliver my skip?

We make use of a network of both local and national businesses to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. In most cases, these type of skips are used for business uses. Having said that, household customers may also order them. You have to consider the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can in most cases keep a skip for as many as two weeks from the delivery date. You may give a chosen collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during hectic times.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Where will my waste go when the skip is picked up?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
