Campbeltown Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste in my skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Campbeltown where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Campbeltown?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can usually offer a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (for example a road), you must get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Campbeltown?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a residential job, then a driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or other public property in Campbeltown. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The standard hire time frame is a fortnight from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you order your skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical goods like tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these type of skips are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. You will need to look at the area they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for light materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we can manage it all.
In case you will not be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.
Is it okay to load the skip above the side?
No, you must only load your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you might be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like soil or rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky items like furniture a lot easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and construction work. There are usually two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
How many different skip sizes are available?

What types of waste can I put in my skip?
It is possible to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or soil, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
