Sanquhar Skip Hire FAQs

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can access the place you want it delivered, we will take care of everything.

If you are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned on a particular side of the driveway. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.

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

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

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Sanquhar, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each option costs to order. If your skip will be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

Where will the rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

Once 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 separated into the different waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

If I require a skip on the road in Sanquhar, will I need a permit?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The standard hire time frame is 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is finished with sooner than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic products such as washing machines, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to dispose of large amounts of waste materials. Generally, these skips are used for business purposes. However, household customers may also hire them. You should think about the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and concrete.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to empty any rubbish above the level load line. This means that you can not use sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you choose the correct sized skip for your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

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

This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that could result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most common things that we pick up in skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, sinks, and various other household objects.

There are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, monitors and washing machines for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can usually supply skips to Sanquhar the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program will give you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like a skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

What size is a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction work. There are usually two skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as earth, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
