Below are examples of common questions we receive regarding our skip hire and recycling services.
Clydebank Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Our normal hire time frame will be 14 days from your delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Am I allowed to fill my skip above the top?
It is essential never to overload a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Clydebank?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Clydebank and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products must be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
If I want a skip on the road in Clydebank, will I need to have a permit?
Normally, it will be possible to get your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you have got to have consent from the local authority in Clydebank, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Do you deliver skips across Dunbartonshire?
As well as delivering skips to Clydebank, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Dunbartonshire. Through our network of local and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Clydebank, Cumbernauld or Bearsden, we have got you covered.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Clydebank?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the order process.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What size skips have a drop door?
Having a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste such as dirt or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky items such as furniture easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
How do you hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Clydebank through us is very easy. Select the skip size you want and then input a couple of details about when and where you need your skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered to you.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction and demolition jobs. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition materials, including soil, rubble and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Can I dispose of all types of rubbish in the skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building waste such as rubble or top soil, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a variety of waste streams, which includes wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Clydebank, you will have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clear ups including bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more information regarding the various capacities offered, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What is the cost of skip hire in Clydebank?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Clydebank. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste materials.
