How is my skip delivered and collected?
The skip is delivered by one of our fleet of vehicles, similarly, unless you specifically choose your date of collection we will collect the skip 14 days after delivery.
Where can the skip be placed?
The skip can be placed anywhere on your land as long as there is sufficient space for our vehicle to get to (It is at the hirers discretion and responsibility if you require us to place the skip on your drive).
It can also go on a public road or verge, however, we would have to arrange a permit from the relevant Local Authority for this. This can all be arranged when booking with one of our Customer Service Advisors. You can call them on 01506 65 65 60
Do you recycle the contents of the skip?
Wherever possible items that are in your skip will be recycled or sent for re-processing. Scotwaste pride ourselves on aiming for Zero to Landfill.

The cost of the skip includes delivery, disposal of material in it and collection. If required, we will also arrange a permit from the relevant Local Authority.
What access do I need to provide?
For the vehicle to safely place the skip we need approx. 3m width.
Are the skips safe on my property?
Generally speaking, we have very few problems with skip safety. Liability for the skip is with the person that hired the skip during the duration of the hire.
