Troon Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can typically hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic items such as tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will then be asked to remove any contents higher than the level load line. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to order the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
Will you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Troon, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Ayrshire and Arran. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Troon, Saltcoats or Maybole, we have got you covered.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into several different waste types, such as timber, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How soon can you deliver a skip to Troon?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted journey.
What size is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for building and construction projects. There are generally two different skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as garden soil, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Troon?

We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost you to order. If your skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Am I able to throw all types of waste in the skip?
Before you hire a skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you want to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could put in a skip include household items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as timber, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that generate large amounts of waste materials.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Our company offers a complete variety of skip sizes to residential and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sizes available, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags

Will a skip hire company from Troon deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Which size skips have got a door?
Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Troon through us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you want and then input a few details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Troon?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a household task, then a driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Troon. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
