Kilsyth Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electrical items like television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered goods need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Kilsyth?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic task, then your drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Kilsyth. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Do all skips have a drop door?
For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.
What size skips do you deliver?
We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Kilsyth companies which have a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Kilsyth. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you want your skip to be delivered.

What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste like rubble or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip ordered throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for hefty materials including soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a highway), you must gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will probably be asked to empty any items above the level load line. This also means that you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you hire the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into a variety of waste streams, including timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you have a business in Kilsyth and wish to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, that are picked up using chains.
What is the cost of skip hire in Kilsyth?
The cost of getting a skip in Kilsyth is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
