Abercynon Skip Hire FAQs

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the top?

It is vital never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you may be required to take off the surplus rubbish. However safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.

Will you deliver to other areas in Mid Glamorgan?

In addition to delivering skips to Abercynon, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Mid Glamorgan. Through our network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Abercynon, Treharris or Pontyclun, we have got you covered.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Abercynon?

Generally, it is possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you have got to get approval from your local council in Abercynon, which is called a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How long does it take to get a skip in Abercynon?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

If you have a company in Abercynon and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are lifted using chains.

Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

You can use a skip to get rid of many different waste types. We are used to picking up and handling numerous materials produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different waste types are generally allowed, so whether you want to dispose of metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you put in the skip will vary depending on the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you wish to get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size you will be permitted to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few waste materials that you will not be able to dump in your skip. The main reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials which may damage the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, and so they must be discarded separately under UK law.

A few of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that is not feasible, you do not have to stress. Just tell us when making your booking, and we will handle the rest.

What size skips do you provide?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Abercynon, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small house clearances and DIY tasks.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for household clearances including bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.

To get more information about the various sizes offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly supplied for building jobs. There are usually two different sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition waste, like dirt, rubble and bricks.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.

What skip sizes have a drop down door?

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as furniture.

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

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

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely.

Where does the waste go when the skip is collected?

Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
