Abercarn Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Abercarn?

We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we can provide in Abercarn. Pick the right size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you want the skip delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to verify your order as soon as your booking is done!

Do all skips have a drop down door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip with a drop door is delivered.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

Having said that, if this isn’t possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are hired for commercial purposes. However, household customers can also use them. You will need to think about the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for lightweight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and stone.

Will you deliver skips across Gwent?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Abercarn, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Gwent. By utilising our network of regional and national skip companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Abercarn, Risca or Newbridge, we have got you covered.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction and demolition work. There are typically two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Abercarn?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted journey.

Can I load the skip above level load line?

You should not load your skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to move, and you can be asked to remove the extra waste before it can be picked up.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electric powered products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects should be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Abercarn where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Abercarn?

This will depend on the size you want and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings. To get an immediate price for skip hire in Abercarn, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The regular hire term is 14 days from your date of delivery. However, when you order your skip, you can select a pick up date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is full earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Abercarn?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure authorisation from your local authority in Abercarn, which is called a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Will a skip hire company from Abercarn deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Abercarn and the rest of the country. Each of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I able to put all types of rubbish in my skip?

You are allowed to load your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy building wastes including rubble or top soil, the largest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Other areas covered include Risca, Newbridge, Newport, Caerleon, Bargod, Brynmawr, Pontllanfraith and Blackwood.
