Kilwinning Skip Hire FAQs

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

A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are primarily for business use but can be used by household clients also. However, you will require plenty of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Can you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?

As well as delivering our range of skips to Kilwinning, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Ayrshire and Arran. Through a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Kilwinning, Troon or Largs, we have got it covered.

What size skips will have a door?

Having a skip with a drop down door can make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items like household furniture easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

Will a skip hire company from Kilwinning deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Kilwinning and the rest of the UK. All of our partner businesses are approved and tested to make certain they satisfy our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Is it ok to load up the skip above level load mark?

You must not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip may be the perfect option. What size is known as a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential work like modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How long will it take to get a skip in Kilwinning?

We can normally deliver skips to Kilwinning the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system will give you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need the skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection day when making your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Am I allowed to throw electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical items including washing machines, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

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

After you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Kilwinning where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How do you hire a skip in Kilwinning?

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your delivery postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we can provide in Kilwinning. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of when and where you want the skip delivered.

Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?

You are able to throw a wide array of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden work is allowed also. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.

There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risks they could trigger.

You are unable to throw in your freezer, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.

Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please get in touch for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy materials such as garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Kilwinning?

Our goal is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Kilwinning. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the road or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.

What skip sizes do you offer?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Kilwinning, you will have several options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them great for house clear ups involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.

For further information about the different skip sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

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

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, 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 company or residence, you need to get permission from the local authority in Kilwinning, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, plus you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
