Whitburn (West Lothian) Skip Hire FAQs

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are primarily for business use but can be used by residential customers as well. However, you should have lots of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, these skips should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not fill up a skip past the level load mark. If you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The regular hire time frame is two weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.

We will normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What happens to the waste?

Once you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Whitburn where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that the skip is dropped exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

However, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently used for building and construction work. There are typically two skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition waste materials, including earth, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What kinds of waste am I able to throw in a skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that may result from garden work, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most frequent items that we see in skips include dirt, timber, tree cuttings, cupboards, toilets, and other household items.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electronic objects (fridges and freezers, televisions and computers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them has to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

Can I get a skip with a drop down door?

The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like furniture.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods such as washing machines, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

We will make sure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
