Rutherglen Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Rutherglen deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

What are the different skip sizes available?

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

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.

We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For additional details about the various sizes available, including proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

It is essential to never overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overfill the skip, you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish. However secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is therefore prohibited.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will normally offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, since to be on public property (like a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This includes items like laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in your skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

Can you deliver skips across Lanarkshire?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to household and industrial customers across Lanarkshire and anywhere else within the UK.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into several different waste streams, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Rutherglen?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The regular hire period is 2 weeks from the delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

However, if that is not possible, you do not have to stress. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will handle the rest.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a business in Rutherglen and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are picked up using chains.

How do I order a skip in Rutherglen?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the road). After that, choose the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Rutherglen on the date you have selected.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are perfect for numerous residential and commercial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and concrete.

Am I allowed to put all types of waste in the skip?

You can use a skip to throw out many different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and processing a wide variety of materials generated from construction work, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste types are usually allowed, so whether you would like to throw out metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you discard in the skip will vary depending on the size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to get rid of soil and rubble, for example, the largest size container you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are a few waste items that you are not able to get rid of in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items include hazardous materials which may be damaging to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK regulations.

A few examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Rutherglen?

The cost of getting a skip in Rutherglen is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
