New Galloway Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to my waste once the skip is collected?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste streams, such as stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long can I hire the skip for?

Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What are the different skip sizes available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in New Galloway, you will have multiple options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.

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

Usually, it is possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you must have permission from your local authority in New Galloway, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle numerous tasks.

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

Although most frequently chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in New Galloway?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted trip.

If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in the skip?

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.

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

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household customers as well. Having said that, you will want a lot of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, these skips can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

Am I allowed to fill the skip above the side?

It is important to never overload your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. However safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is prohibited.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip which is hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest size that can be used for hefty waste matter such as dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as soil and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky objects such as furniture easier also.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.
