Newton Stewart Skip Hire FAQs

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Newton Stewart?

Usually, it will be possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you need to get permission from the local authority in Newton Stewart, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise 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 hours for them to approve this.

Where does my waste go when the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, such as timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can you deliver to other areas in Wigtown?

We offer a nationwide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Newton Stewart, Wigtown, Whithorn, Stranraer or another area in Wigtown, we can assist.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the side?

Unfortunately not. You can only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you could be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Newton Stewart?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Newton Stewart on the date you have selected.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can in most cases keep a skip for as long as 14 days from the date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy periods.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most often hired for building work. There are generally two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition waste materials, including earth, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other household and business waste disposal jobs.

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

If you run a business in Newton Stewart and wish to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers available.

As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are lifted by using chains.

Will a skip hire company from Newton Stewart deliver my skip?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Newton Stewart. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to ensure they fulfill the high standards we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

What size skips can you offer?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually 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 residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the cost of skip hire in Newton Stewart?

Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Newton Stewart. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip placed on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?

Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This isn’t so 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.

Am I able to throw away electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical products including old televisions, cookers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.

What kinds of waste am I able to throw in a skip?

It is possible to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or top soil, the maximum size you would be able to hire is an 8 yard skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.

When you are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
