Abergavenny Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in Abergavenny?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest option that can be used for hefty waste matter including garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
What is the cost of skip hire in Abergavenny?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Abergavenny. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip placed on the street or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when the skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being home when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to your company property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Abergavenny?
If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are doing a household job, then the driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Abergavenny. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is essential to not overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overload your skip, you might be required to take off the surplus rubbish. However secure you believe the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is not allowed.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop door helps make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like dirt and concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky objects like furniture much easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you need the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Abergavenny on the date you have selected.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, cardboard, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

What is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential work like modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical products including old TVs, freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Can I dispose of all sorts of waste in the skip?
You can use a skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of items from construction work, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials can include:
- Household furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste materials are accepted, and so whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you throw into your skip will vary according to which size skip you ordered. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you will be able to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are some items which you will not be able to discard in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items incorporate hazardous elements which could cause damage to the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.
Some examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
How many different skip sizes are there?
We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Abergavenny businesses with a large amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.
