Darvel Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Darvel deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Darvel and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are approved and tested to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?

If you have a business in Darvel and need to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.

What happens to the rubbish?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, like soil, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Select the best size to meet your needs and give us the details of when and where you want the skip delivered.

Am I able to throw away electronic products in my skip?

Electrical objects including televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items need to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip that is ordered in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

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

You don’t really need to be home when the skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being there when the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, if you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Is it ok to load my skip higher than the top?

No, you are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you can be asked to remove the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Darvel?

This depends upon the size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

Before getting your skip, you must check that the type of waste you wish to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you can put in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, including old bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of forbidden items include things like electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from general waste.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Darvel?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.

How big is the mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential work such as small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Do you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?

In addition to delivering skips and containers to Darvel, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Ayrshire and Arran. With the help of our network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Darvel, Largs or Newmilns, we have got you covered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Darvel?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save some money.
