Cumbernauld Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suitable for numerous types of domestic and commercial tasks. These are the largest sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and bricks.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door makes loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Will you deliver skips across Dunbartonshire?
Sure, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas throughout Dunbartonshire, including Cumbernauld, Clydebank, Bearsden and Helensburgh. So no matter where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Our online booking system provides you with a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
What size skips can you offer?
We offer a complete variety of skip sizes to household and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different skip sizes offered, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags

How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The regular hire period will be two weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We will normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station either in or local to Cumbernauld where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I allowed to load up the skip above level load line?
It is important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as materials could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This can include things like laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical items can’t be thrown in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cumbernauld?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by household customers also. However, you should have lots of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Cumbernauld?
Our goal is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Cumbernauld. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the road or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.

What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish which will come from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most common things which we find in skips include dirt, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various other household products.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This can include any electronic items (fridges and freezers, TVs and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them must comply with an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we will take care of it all.
If you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to ensure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
