Paisley Skip Hire FAQs

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things like computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and computer monitors. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

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

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a residential task, then a drive is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Paisley. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

How much does skip hire in Paisley cost?

Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Paisley. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This varies 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 situated on the street or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can typically supply skips to Paisley the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform offers you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by residential customers too. However, you will require a lot of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, these containers can only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

You must not fill up the skip past the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be collected.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for larger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

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

What happens to the waste in my skip?

The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, stone and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

How big is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of waste to throw out, a mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, based on what sizes they offer.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential tasks such as small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Can I throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling lots of items generated from construction jobs, garden landscaping and household tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you want to throw out furniture, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you discard in your skip may vary based on the size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size you would be allowed to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few waste materials that you are not allowed to dump in the skip. The reason for this is that some items contain hazardous materials that may be harmful to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately under UK legislation.

Examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Generally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect 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.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we can take care of it all.

For those who will not be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular side of your drive. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Having a skip that has a drop door can make loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste such as dirt and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items like household furniture much easier also.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are perfect for numerous household and industrial jobs. They are the biggest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.
