To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are able to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed too. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.

There are, however, a few things that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they could cause.

You can not throw out your fridge, printer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous elements in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Please get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. However, you should have a good amount of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roro containers should only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.

How can I order a skip in Gourock?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the road). After that, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Gourock on the day you have chosen.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical objects like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items need to be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for as many as 14 days from the date of delivery. You may give a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic times.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to take on many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Gourock businesses with a big quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as objects could drop and cause injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this situation, please ensure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction jobs. There are usually two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for various other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Gourock?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you need to get authorisation from your local council in Gourock, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if hiring a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What happens to the waste?

The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, such as metal, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
