Innerleithen Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep a skip for?
Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up 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 soon as possible.
How do you hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Innerleithen through us is very easy. Decide on the skip size you want and then input 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 platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered to you.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, you must check that the sort of waste you intend to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could throw in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Innerleithen?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Innerleithen. We employ a network of both local and national companies to allow us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to make certain they satisfy the high expectations we demand with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Innerleithen?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. When you are carrying out a residential project, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Innerleithen. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver is given complete access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste materials, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical products such as tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
Do you deliver to other areas in Tweeddale?
We offer a national skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Innerleithen, Peebles, %OTHER2%, %OTHER3% or another location in Tweeddale, we are able to assist.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the top?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded skip is dangerous, as objects could drop and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please make sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are fantastic for a multitude of residential and business jobs. These are the largest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste like soil, stone and bricks.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Innerleithen?
Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Innerleithen. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip placed on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
Can I have a skip with a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as furniture.
