Aberdare Skip Hire FAQs

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

If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the order process.

Where does the rubbish be taken to once the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Aberdare where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Will a Aberdare skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national skip service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

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

If possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic job, then a drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Aberdare. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Aberdare, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer 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 actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when your skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to business premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

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

Unfortunately not, since electronic products including old TVs, refrigerators, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. Predominantly, these containers are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, household clients can also order them. You will need to consider the area they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for lightweight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are suited to a multitude of household and business tasks. They are the biggest sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and gravel.

What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?

It is possible to throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in a skip.

There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they can cause.

You are unable to throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this material. Please email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Can I have a skip with a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials like soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

Can you deliver to other areas in Mid Glamorgan?

Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to both residential and industrial customers throughout Mid Glamorgan and anywhere else in the UK.

What skip sizes do you offer?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Aberdare, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes 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 make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or stone.

To get more information about the various capacities available, including measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Can I fill the skip above level load line?

You should not fill up your skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you might be asked to remove any excess rubbish before it can be collected.

Other areas covered include Pontypridd, Merthyr Tydfil, Talbot Green, Pontycymer, Treorchy, Pencoed, Ferndale and Rhondda.
