Wishaw Skip Hire FAQs

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

It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Will you deliver skips across Lanarkshire?

Along with delivering skips to Wishaw, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Lanarkshire. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Wishaw, Carluke or Hamilton, we have got you covered.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

If you manage a business in Wishaw and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.

Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will probably have to remove any rubbish above the level load mark. This means you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not put old electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things such as computers, cookers, washing machines, freezers and monitors. Electronic products can’t be discarded in the skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

What happens to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste materials, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

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

You can load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building waste like concrete or top soil, the biggest size you could hire is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

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

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.

If I would like a skip on a road in Wishaw, will I need to get a permit?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household job, then your drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Wishaw. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The regular hire term will be 2 weeks from the delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can select a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We will normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How much does skip hire in Wishaw cost?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Wishaw, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each option costs to order. If your skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Using a skip which has a drop down door makes filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building tasks, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste matter like dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.
