Stewarton Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of skip hire in Stewarton?
The cost of hiring a skip in Stewarton will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to transport large volumes of waste. Predominantly, these type of containers are hired for industrial purposes. However, domestic clients can also order them. You should look at the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light materials including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can access where you need it located, we can manage it all.
For those who will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your drive. Alternatively, you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
If I want a skip on the road in Stewarton, will I need a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are doing a household task, then your drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or other public property in Stewarton. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Will a skip hire company from Stewarton deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Stewarton and the rest of the UK. Our partner companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. Electrical objects can’t be thrown in your skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How can I hire a skip in Stewarton?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). After that, select the date you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Stewarton on the day you have selected.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for construction jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, including earth, concrete and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Stewarton?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Stewarton, you have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them great for household clear ups including large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
To get more information about the different sizes available, such as proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a range of waste streams, which includes stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You can only load your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you could be told to remove the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Do you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to residential and industrial customers throughout Ayrshire and Arran and elsewhere within the UK.
What can I put in the skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or garden soil, the largest size you can hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can typically keep your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
