Lanark Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lanark?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be used to get rid of heavy building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or dirt.

A builders skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your shed, these substantial containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

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

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we endeavour to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

What things 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 actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you are able to throw in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to throw out building and construction waste, like timber, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from general waste.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Lanark?

As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified companies. These include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually have a skip for as many as two weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy periods.

What skip sizes can you supply?

Where will the waste go when the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do you deliver to other areas in Lanarkshire?

Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Lanarkshire, including Lanark, Rutherglen, Airdrie and Bellshill. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for business uses. Having said that, residential customers can also order them. You should take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.

What is the cost of skip hire in Lanark?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Lanark, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

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

You don’t need to be home when your skip is delivered, but it can help. Being home whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that the skip is dropped precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

What size is the mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip could be the best option. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.

The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for domestic work including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Do all skips have a drop door?

The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

How can I hire a skip in Lanark?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the road). Next, pick the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Lanark on the day you have selected.

Can I load up the skip above the top?

It is important to never overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overload your skip, you could be required to remove the excess rubbish. However safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
