Will you deliver skips across Stirling and Falkirk?

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Doune?

In most cases, it will be possible to have the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must have consent from your local authority in Doune, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

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

Guide to skip sizes

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Doune?

Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Doune. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the highway or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of a skip permit.

What happens to the waste when the skip is collected?

The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like soil, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

What types of waste can I put in the skip?

It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including concrete or soil, the biggest size you would be able to get is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical items such as old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

What size is a builder’s skip?

A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to get rid of heavy building waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your shed, these substantial containers are often the most affordable option available.

Can I load the skip above the side?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you may be asked to remove any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The standard hire period will be two weeks from your delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We will usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the order process.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you run a company in Doune and want to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.

As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.

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

No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to access where you want it located, we will manage it all.
