Coatbridge Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What will happen to the rubbish?

As soon as 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 range of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What types of waste can I put in the skip?

You may use your skip to get rid of a variety of waste types. We are experienced in picking up and processing numerous materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and house clearances. Examples of permitted waste materials include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste types are generally accepted, and therefore whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you throw into the skip can vary based on which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like discard soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are a few materials you are not permitted to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that these items incorporate hazardous elements which could harm the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately under UK laws.

Some examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

How long does it take to get a skip in Coatbridge?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you will need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial scale skips used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce significant volumes of waste materials.

Who will deliver my skip?

Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These include small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

How do you hire a skip in Coatbridge?

Ordering a skip in Coatbridge through us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you want and input a couple of details about when and where you need your skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered to you.

Can I have a skip which has a drop door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Coatbridge?

Generally, it is possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you will need to have permission from the local council in Coatbridge, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Coatbridge, you have numerous options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them ideal for household clear ups involving bulky items like furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.

For additional information about the various capacities offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Am I allowed to load up my skip above level load line?

It is important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip is hazardous, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please ensure that you order a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Electrical objects such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects need to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Can you deliver skips across Lanarkshire?

In addition to delivering skips to Coatbridge, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Lanarkshire. By utilising our network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Coatbridge, Rutherglen or Airdrie, we have got it covered.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Coatbridge?

Our goal is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Coatbridge. 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 lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip situated on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.

What is a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction work. There are generally two skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste, such as soil, concrete and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
