When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually give you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (like a street), you will need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Grangemouth?
Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which can result from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most common items that we pick up in skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and various household products.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This includes any electronic goods (fridges, televisions or cookers for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.
Do you deliver to other areas in Stirling and Falkirk?
Indeed, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Stirling and Falkirk, including Grangemouth, Dunblane, Falkirk and Stirling. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What happens to the rubbish?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, paper, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be picked up.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for as many as 14 days from the date of delivery. You may provide a chosen pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy times.
Can I have a skip that has a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?
Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects should be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Grangemouth?
Normally, it will be possible to get the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you must have permission from your local authority in Grangemouth, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the largest containers used to get rid of substantial building and construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.
A builders skip is great for a wide array of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your loft, these big skips are usually the most affordable solution available.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Grangemouth?
The price of getting a skip in Grangemouth depends on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip placed on the road, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
