Waste Management & Collection in Falkirk

Waste Collection Service

Skip Hire Falkirk understand that customers have varied waste management needs and often require waste collection services that differ from the “normal” skip hire model of a skip being delivered to site, the client filling it and after a few days the full skip being removed. We realise that this model does not necessarily meet everyone’s requirements whether it be household waste, business/commercial waste, waste generated by public sector organisations such as care homes or schools or building waste from the construction industry. To help such customers we provide a range of alternative waste collection services to cover situations where conventional skip hire is unsuitable.

Waste Recycling Service

Skip Hire Falkirk provides a professional waste removal service at a competitive price to domestic householders, commercial businesses and public service bodies whether they have one-off or ongoing waste management needs. We’ll help you to manage your waste in an efficiently and environmentally-responsible manner. We appreciate the importance to our customers of having a partner that offers a consistently reliable, cost-effective and professional waste collection service.

Waste Collection Service

Our wait & load skip hire service is designed for jobs where the customer will have the waste ready to be loaded into a skip but either cannot obtain a permit or cannot/is not allowed to allocate the space for a skip to sit on site for the regular hire period (up to a week).

We’ll deliver a “wait and load” skip anywhere in the Forth Valley area and upon arrival we’ll place the skip in your desired location and wait for a short period, during which you or your contractors load the waste into the skip.

Following loading, we lift the skip back onto our lorry and take it away immediately, leaving your drive, yard or site space free once more and removing the need for you to apply, pay for and wait for a skip hire permit from Falkirk Council (a wait & load skip hire is classed as “loading” only). This saves you time, effort and money.

While this service is only suitable for certain types of waste jobs, such as where the waste (or clutter) has already been separated and is readily accessible to allow the skip to be loaded quickly, it is popular with domestic customers without drives, businesses that cannot have skips taking up space in their yards, depots, parking spaces for days, and companies working in busy town centres (e.g. shop fitting, office refurbishment). For such clients, hiring a wait and load skip might frequently be a preferable solution. 

Need a wait and load skip hire near me in Falkirk, Bo’ness, Grangemouth or anywhere in the Forth Valley area?

Call us now to discuss your requirements on 01324 468821.

Whilst this service will suit only certain types of job i.e. those where you have already sorted out what is waste (or junk) enabling loading to be done quickly, it is very popular with firms doing work in town centres – (e.g. flooring replacement, shop fitting, office refits), domestic customers who do not have a driveway and organisations that simply cannot have skips taking up space in their depots or yards for extended periods. A wait and load skip is a more practical and efficient way to hire a skip for these kinds of customer.

Experienced Waste Management Firm

In order to adhere to the Scottish government’s “Zero Waste Plan” it is essential for you to be aware that, as a responsible waste management service, we work only with those who comply with the applicable Scottish waste regulations/guidelines.

The ultimate goal of all of us is to minimise the volume of waste going to landfill by recovering, recycling and reusing as much as we possibly can and disposing of the remainder as responsibly as possible.

The correct handling of your waste is vital to protect not just our current environment – irresponsible and illegal fly-tipping/dumping creates both an eyesore and a serious health hazard – but also the future environment that we are leaving to our children.

Our hire rates reflect the fact that we deal with your waste responsibly and in accordance with the law, unlike some (unrealistically) cheap skip hire companies who may consider it acceptable to dump your waste anywhere where they think no-one will notice.

Such operators are destroy Scotland’s environment for the sake of their own greed whilst us taxpayers are left to foot the bill for their dishonest practices.

Skip Hire Falkirk condemns such reckless actions and we urge you to think very carefully before hiring a skip from a cheap skip hire operator quoting suspiciously low prices – it is highly likely that to offer such prices your waste is simply being dumped illegally and closer to home than you may think.

Removing this fly-tipped waste costs local authorities (and you, the council tax payer) around £2.5 million every single year. As well as costing money, any illegally-dumped waste that can be traced back to you may lead to a nasty shock as you may find yourself facing legal action for fly-tipping. Why take the chance?

For the medium-long term, limiting the amount of waste going to landfill is crucial as it is simply not viable to continue dumping waste at current levels in the future as Scotland’s existing landfill sites will become full.

This would mean that existing Scottish waste sites run out of space or we will have to use precious space (and scarce finance) to develop even more landfill sites. Waste materials that you may not have even thought of as either reusable, recyclable or recoverable can, in fact, be just that – e.g. government targets include the recycling of 70% of construction and demolition waste by 2020.

By 2025 the goal is for 70% of all waste to be recycled, composted or prepared for re-use with no more than 5% ending up in landfill.

Eco-friendly waste management company

It is important for us all to work together in order to meet these waste recycling targets and this includes streamlining the handling of waste as much as possible so it can be easily sorted into the correct categories for recycling and reuse to minimise what goes to landfill and prevent contamination. You can assist us to manage your waste effectively by letting us know precisely what waste you are going to dispose of in your hired skip. This means that we know exactly what to expect in your load, how to handle/recycle it and it ensures that there are no unexpected items which can contaminate a whole load of potentially recyclable waste (or involve you being charged for unauthorised hazardous or non-recyclable waste). We are aware of some cheap skip hire companies even refusing to uplift skips at all when clients have put unauthorised waste items into skips. Such filled skips have sat on their customers’ driveways for months so their initial cheap skip hire prices are a false economy. It’s always best to accurately describe the waste you intend to dispose of and if you are in any doubt, just ask us.

Items we cant remove.

  • Paints
  • Oils
  • Tyres
  • Car batteries
  • Asbestos-containing materials
  • Mattresses
  • Fridges/freezers
  • TV’s/laptops
  • Electrical appliances

As a professional waste management business, our goal is to help you with any type of waste but it is essential for you, ourselves and the local environment that you inform us fully as to what you intend to place in your skip. This information means that we can advise you as to the best way to handle the relevant waste and prevents any nasty surprises. Providing high quality customer service is central to what we do and we aim to help all of our customers dispose of their waste responsibly, no matter what it is, in order to minimise the impact on our environment.

Call us now on 01324 468821 to discuss your waste situation and find out how we can help you.
