Kirkintilloch Skip Hire FAQs
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This can include such things as laptops or computers, hobs, washing machines, fridges and tv sets. Electric products can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients too. Having said that, you will require lots of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, RORO skips can only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Kirkintilloch?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. If you are carrying out a domestic task, then your drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Kirkintilloch. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

We utilize a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high principles we demand with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop door will make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Kirkintilloch, you will have various sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for household clear ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
To get more information regarding the various sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being home when the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, if you can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange things from there.

Where does my waste go when the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for a multitude of domestic and commercial jobs. They are the biggest skips that can be used for weighty builders waste like dirt, rubble and gravel.
Can I put all types of waste in the skip?
Before hiring a skip, it is important to check that the kind of waste you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and construction waste, like wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as materials could fall and cause injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please be sure to order a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
