Newmilns Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What size skips have got a drop down door?
Typically, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will a Newmilns skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we provide a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Can I load the skip above level load mark?
It is important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the common skip hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest size that can be used for hefty waste matter such as dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Newmilns?
Normally, it is possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you have got to get consent from your local council in Newmilns, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?
Your skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of materials generated from construction work, garden projects and household clearances. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of materials are usually accepted, and therefore whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and waste types you discard in the skip will vary based on the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to discard top soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you will be able to hire will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some materials that you will not be able to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items include hazardous components which may cause harm to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK law.
Examples of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
When 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 sorted into the different waste materials, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for bigger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Newmilns companies which generate a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

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

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, if that is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Electrical items like TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products have to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How much will skip hire in Newmilns cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Newmilns will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?
We offer a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Newmilns, Girvan, Darvel, Irvine or any other area in Ayrshire and Arran, we can help.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a company in Newmilns and want to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, which are lifted using chains.
