Dunoon Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You can only pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Do you deliver skips across Argyll and Bute?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Dunoon, Lochgilphead, Tobermory, Campbeltown or another area in Argyll and Bute, we can help.

What is the cost of skip hire in Dunoon?

This depends on the skip size you need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings. To obtain an immediate price for skip hire in Dunoon, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Dunoon?

Hiring a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to see the range of skips we can deliver to Dunoon. Pick the size you wish to order, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on private property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that generate significant quantities of waste.

Can I get a skip with a drop down door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle many tasks.

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

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Dunoon, you will have numerous sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups including bulky objects like furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.

How long will it take to get a skip in Dunoon?

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

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.

The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What things can I put in my skip?

Before hiring your skip, it is important to check that the sort of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Waste types it is possible to discard in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including timber, soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of restricted items include electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid not, since electrical products including old televisions, freezers, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.

What will happen to the rubbish?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the different waste materials, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip that is hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty materials including garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The normal hire period is two weeks from the date of delivery. However, when you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we offer a national waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These can range from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Dunoon?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
