Aberaeron Skip Hire FAQs
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Aberaeron?
The cost of hiring a skip in Aberaeron is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a company in Aberaeron and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
If I want a skip on the road in Aberaeron, will I need a permit?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition work, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest size that can be used for hefty materials like garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
This site offers a complete variety of skip sizes to household and business clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sized skips offered, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags

Can I dispose of electrical products in the skip?
Electronic products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric objects should be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Aberaeron?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up in a AM or PM slot.
Am I allowed to put all sorts of waste in the skip?
You can use a skip to get rid of many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and processing numerous materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and household tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include things like:
- Household furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste types are generally permitted, therefore whether you want to dispose of metals, plastics, wood or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you throw into the skip may vary based on the size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to get rid of top soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are some waste materials that you are not able to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these products include hazardous elements which may harm the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately under UK regulations.
Some examples of the products which are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You must only load the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line makes it unsafe to move, and you might be told to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
What happens to the waste in the skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a number of waste streams, such as stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from your delivery date. You can give a preferred collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy periods.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
Do you deliver skips across Dyfed?
Sure, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across Dyfed, such as Aberaeron, Kidwelly, St Clears and Carmarthen. So regardless of where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
