A skip is a waste container which is hired out to businesses, homes & local authorities for the purpose of containing discarded rubbish. Skips are used for a wide variety of purposes, including domestic DIY & garden waste clearance. They can also be employed during refurbishments, home improvement projects & office refits. They are the most efficient way of disposing of large amounts of unwanted waste & can be booked for as short or long periods as required, with prices varying according to size & duration of hire.

The most popular domestic skips are two & four yard midi skips. The smaller of  the two – a 2 yard skip – is ideal for those producing low volumes of waste, such as small gardening jobs, house or room clearances & bathroom refits. It holds around 25 – 35 standard black bin bags and measures at 1.8m x 1.3m x 1m (approx).

If you are carrying out a full kitchen or bathroom rip out then a 4 yard skip will be more suitable, as it can hold up to 45 – 55 standard black bin bags. A larger skip – a 6 yarder – can be hired for bigger kitchen or bathroom refits as well as larger household or commercial clearances.

Businesses & organisations often utilise skips for stock clearance, shopfitting & refits as well as end of tenancy clean-outs and site refurbishments. Larger buildings such as schools, universities & care homes can be supplied with regular skip hires for their on-site waste management & collection needs.

Depending on the location of your property in Book your Paisley skip hire now, it may be necessary to acquire a skip permit from Renfrewshire Council. Clearabee can arrange this on your behalf as part of our service, though most of our clients simply rely on placing their skip on their own driveway or private land. Placing a skip on the public highway requires a permit that can only be obtained from the council once the correct size of skip has been booked. In these cases we can offer advice as to the most suitable location for your skip and, if required, we can apply on your behalf for a road closure.
