Greenock Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for domestic work like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Will a Greenock skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we can manage everything.

In case you will not be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped at a particular part of your property. Or you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste streams, such as wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What size is a builders skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip that is ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which can be used for heavy waste matter like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Can you deliver to other areas in Renfrewshire?

Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and business customers across Renfrewshire and anywhere else in the UK.

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

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you have got to receive permission from the local council in Greenock, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products must be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Can I load my skip higher than level load line?

I’m afraid not. You must only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you can be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Greenock?

This is determined by the skip size you want and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Greenock?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will typically give a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to be on public property (for example a street), you must get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as furniture.

What can I put in the skip?

Before you hire a skip, you must ensure that the kind of waste you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you may discard in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these type of containers are used for business uses. Having said that, household clients can also use them. It is very important look at the area they occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and concrete.

How do I order a skip in Greenock?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). After that, select the day you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Greenock on the day you have selected.
