Langholm Skip Hire FAQs

Can I have a skip with a drop door?

When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, although these are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is provided.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also provide 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a domestic task, then a drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Langholm. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

What size is a builder’s skip?

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 discard heavy building and demolition waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the garden shed, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective option available.

Can you deliver to other areas in Dumfries?

We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Langholm, Dumfries, Lockerbie, Annan or another site in Dumfries, we are able to help.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are used for industrial applications. However, domestic customers can also order them. It is important to consider the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for light waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and hardcore.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into various waste types, such as stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can in most cases keep a skip for as many as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic periods.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

How large 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 bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and soil. With a volume of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.

Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load line?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will probably have to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This also means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to order the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products should be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Langholm?

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

What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish which will come from garden work, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most common things that we see in skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, cabinets, baths, and various other household objects.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical items (refrigerators, monitors and washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to comply with a completely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
