Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Galston?
In most cases, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you will need to get permission from your local authority in Galston, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How do you order a skip in Galston?
Ordering a skip in Galston through us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you need and enter a handful of details about when and where you want your skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered.
What is a builders skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is ordered in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.
Am I allowed to fill up the skip higher than the top?
It is vital never to overload your skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you may be asked to take away the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is not allowed.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a complete selection of skip capacities to household and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you need plenty of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro containers should only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I have a skip with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door can make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste like garden soil and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What sort of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about our service. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that could come from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, sinks, and various household items.
However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electronic goods (refrigerators, TVs or printers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them needs to abide by a completely different process to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually supply skips to Galston the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will give you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want the skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Can you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Galston, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Ayrshire and Arran. With the help of our network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Galston, Prestwick or Ardrossan, we have got it covered.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Galston and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered items including televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods should be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
