Renfrew Skip Hire FAQs

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition work. There are typically two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste, like soil, rubble and bricks.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t need to be at home when the skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that your skip will be located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, if you can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

How long will it take to get a skip in Renfrew?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

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

When 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 the various waste materials, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Renfrew?

Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Renfrew. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you will want a good amount of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, these skips can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.

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

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric items like washing machines, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Will you deliver skips across Renfrewshire?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Renfrew, Paisley, Johnstone, Erskine or any other site in Renfrewshire, we are able to help.

Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?

It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded bin is unsafe, as materials could fall and cause personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure you hire a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that may come from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most frequent items that we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen units, baths, and various household products.

However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electronic products (tumble dryers, TVs and printers for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them has to follow an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they offer.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic work including small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

How do I order a skip in Renfrew?

Hiring a skip in Renfrew through us is very easy. Select the skip size you require and then input a couple of details about when and where you need the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered.

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

In most cases, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you will need to get approval from the local council in Renfrew, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and rubble. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Who will deliver my skip?

As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
