Stevenston Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition work. There are typically two skip sizes that can be described 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 dispose of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like dirt, rubble and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Stevenston, you have various sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are great for household tidy ups including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For additional information regarding the different capacities offered, including dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Stevenston?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Stevenston and the rest of the UK. All of our partner companies are verified and tested to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, such as soil, plastics, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
What skip sizes have got a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop door can make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil or stone, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky items like furniture a lot easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
Do you deliver to other areas in Ayrshire and Arran?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you need skip hire in Stevenston, Darvel, Galston, Girvan or any other site in Ayrshire and Arran, we are able to assist.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excess waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip is dangerous, as waste could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have further waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
Can I throw all types of rubbish in a skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste you intend to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, including timber, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general waste.
How long does it take to get a skip in Stevenston?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.
However, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when making your order, and then we will handle the rest.
If I want a skip on a road in Stevenston, will I need to get a permit?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will have to obtain permission from the local council in Stevenston, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you operate a company in Stevenston and wish to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical products like cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Stevenston on the date you have chosen.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic periods.
