Dunblane Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to throw all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

You may use a skip to throw out many different waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling numerous items generated from building work, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste types can include:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials are accepted, therefore whether you wish to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and waste types you put into the skip can vary depending on which size skip you hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you wish to discard soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size container you will be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What type of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are several waste materials which you will not be allowed to dispose of in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items include hazardous components which could cause damage to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to access where you want it positioned, we can take care of it all.

For those who will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The standard hire period is a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.

We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

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

If you operate a business in Dunblane and want to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the label implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up using chains.

What is a builder’s skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to discard weighty construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.

The builders skip is great for a variety of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the loft space, these large skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.

What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?

The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the top?

I’m afraid not. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical goods such as washing machines, TVs, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

Do you deliver skips across Stirling and Falkirk?

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Dunblane, you will have various options to pick from, which range 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 small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

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

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for house clearances including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

To get more information about the various sizes offered, including measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Do all skips have a drop door?

For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop door, however these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a container with a drop door is delivered.
