Tillicoultry Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the rubbish?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste types, which includes timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

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

I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electrical products including old TVs, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Tillicoultry, you will have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY work.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also makes them great for household clearances involving bulky objects like furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For more details about the various skip sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price is based on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for domestic tasks such as modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can normally hire your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

It is always best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Do all skips have a drop door?

For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, although these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.

How do you order a skip in Tillicoultry?

Hiring a skip in Tillicoultry with us is very simple. Pick the skip size you require and input a few details about where and when you want the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

What sort of waste can I throw in a skip?

A skip can be hired to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items generated from construction work, garden landscaping and house clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are generally permitted, so whether you wish to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and things you throw in the skip will vary according to the size skip you ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to discard top soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are several items which you are not allowed to put in your skip. The main reason for this is that these items incorporate hazardous materials which could be damaging to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will you deliver to other areas in Clackmannan?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Tillicoultry, Alloa, Alva, Clackmannan or any other location in Clackmannan, we are able to assist.

If I need a skip on a road in Tillicoultry, will I need to get a permit?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.

Am I allowed to load up the skip above level load line?

No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you might be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Will a skip hire company from Tillicoultry deliver my skip?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Tillicoultry. We work with a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to make certain they meet the high expectations we require when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for business use but can be hired by domestic customers as well. However, you will require plenty of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, these skips can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

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

This is determined by the size you require and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

How long does it take to get a skip in Tillicoultry?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted journey.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip that is used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty materials like dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.
