Dumbarton Skip Hire FAQs

If I want a skip on a road in Dumbarton, will I need to get a permit?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you will have to obtain permission from the local authority in Dumbarton, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.

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. So long as we can access where you want it positioned, we will manage everything.

In case you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located at a particular part of the driveway. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly used for building work. There are usually two sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste, such as soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

Do you deliver skips across Dunbartonshire?

Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to both residential and commercial customers across Dunbartonshire and anywhere else within the UK.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for commercial purposes. However, household customers may also hire them. You have to look at the space they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

Will a skip hire company from Dumbarton deliver my skip?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Dumbarton. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Dumbarton, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each option will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

What sort of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

You are allowed to put a variety of waste into the skip. This can include wood, tile, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in the skip.

There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risk they might cause.

You are unable to get rid of your fridge, computer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from normal rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

What skip sizes do you deliver?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Dumbarton, you have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small household clearances and DIY jobs.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them ideal for household tidy ups including bulky items like household furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

For more information regarding the different sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

We have designed our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your delivery address to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Dumbarton. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you would like your skip to be delivered.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The standard hire term is a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into various waste materials, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will normally give a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a highway), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being collected.

Am I able to throw electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops or computers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. Electric products can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What size is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the best solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for household tasks such as modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
