We can deliver skips throughout Abersychan as well as the nearby towns and villages. If you are getting a skip positioned on your private property (like a driveway), we can in most cases schedule delivery within 24 hours.

Abersychan Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Abersychan where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, although they are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in the skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical items such as old televisions, cookers, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this is not possible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Abersychan?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you need to receive authorisation from the local council in Abersychan, which is known as a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial commercial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that generate significant quantities of waste.
Do you deliver skips across Gwent?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations across Gwent, including Abersychan, Abercarn, Chepstow and Tredegar. So no matter where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction work, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size that can be used for heavy materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
What size skips do you offer?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Abersychan companies which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the cost of skip hire in Abersychan?
Our aim is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Abersychan. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip placed on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.
Can I load up my skip higher than the top?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please be sure to hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full and you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
How long does it take to get a skip in Abersychan?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as failed deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
What can I put in the skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste into your skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted too. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in a skip.
However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they could cause.
You are unable to throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous materials in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Please contact us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

We employ a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK.
