Stirling Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stirling?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household task, then a drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Stirling. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Stirling?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually give a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a street), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
How do I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to see the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Stirling. Select which size you wish to order, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on your own property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can you deliver skips across Stirling and Falkirk?
Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Stirling and Falkirk and elsewhere within the UK.
What will happen to my waste when the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of weighty construction waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these substantial containers are often the most affordable solution available.
Will a skip hire company from Stirling deliver my skip?
As we provide a national waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like dirt or hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky objects like household furniture easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our service. The main thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that could come from garden projects, building work and home clearances.
Some of the most common items that we collect in skips include dirt, wood, tree cuttings, cupboards, bathroom suites, as well as other household products.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electrical objects (fridges, TVs and printers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them needs to abide by a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that will give you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that produce large amounts of waste.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items like tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
How much will skip hire in Stirling cost?
The price of getting a skip in Stirling is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Stirling businesses which have a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size available from skip firms and is great for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load line?
Unfortunately not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you might be told to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
