Milngavie Skip Hire FAQs

Can you deliver to other areas in Dunbartonshire?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Milngavie, Bearsden, Dumbarton, Clydebank or another location in Dunbartonshire, we can assist.

Which skip sizes will have a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Generally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you want it.

The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building work. There are usually two sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, like soil, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Milngavie?

This depends upon the skip size you need and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Milngavie?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

What size skips do you deliver?

We provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for larger projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Milngavie firms which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will a skip hire company from Milngavie deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Milngavie and the rest of the country. Our partner businesses are verified and tested to guarantee they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

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 container that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic clients also. Having said that, you should have a good amount of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

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

Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects have to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Milngavie?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you need to get permission from the local council in Milngavie, which is known as a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

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

This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that could come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Among the most typical items that we find in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household products.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (dishwashers, televisions or cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them has to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

No. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
