Coldstream Skip Hire FAQs

What are the different skip sizes available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Coldstream, you will have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are well suited for house tidy ups including bulky objects like furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

For additional information regarding the various capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Am I able to put electrical products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic goods like cookers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you want it.

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

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are perfect for numerous types of domestic and commercial jobs. These are the largest size skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

No, you must only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you may be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Can I put all kinds of waste in the skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which can come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Among the most typical things which we pick up in skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and other household items.

There are some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This includes any electrical items (tumble dryers, TVs and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

What is the cost of skip hire in Coldstream?

This is determined by the size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

What size is the mini skip?

If you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the best choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Will a Coldstream skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These can range from small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like dirt and hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects like furniture easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.

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

If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a household job, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Coldstream. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients too. However, you will need lots of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.

How can I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, select the date you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Coldstream on the date you have selected.

Can you deliver to other areas in Berwickshire?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Coldstream, Duns, Eyemouth, %OTHER3% or another area in Berwickshire, we can help.

What will happen to my waste when the skip is collected?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, such as soil, plastics, concrete and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as failed delivery attempts can result in a charge for the wasted trip.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
