Aberystwyth Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Aberystwyth?

This will depend on the size you want and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Aberystwyth, you have multiple sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY work.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for household clear ups including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.

To get more information regarding the various capacities available, including proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

How do I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or council property (such as the road). After that, choose the date you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Aberystwyth on the date you have selected.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often used for construction and demolition work. There are generally two different sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as soil, rubble and rock.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Will a skip hire company from Aberystwyth deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Aberystwyth and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they match our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Aberystwyth?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will usually give a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (for example a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

What will happen to the rubbish?

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

Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items like cookers, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Will you deliver skips across Dyfed?

We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Aberystwyth, Goodwick, St Clears, Llandysul or another location in Dyfed, we can help.

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

If you operate a business in Aberystwyth and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Do I have to be there when the skip will be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.

However, when this isn’t possible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when you are making your order, and then we will handle the rest.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection day when making your order.

Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.

What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?

You are able to throw a wide array of waste types into your skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed also. Units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in a skip.

There are, however, some things that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they may cause.

You can not throw in your freezer, printer or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this material. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Is it okay to load my skip above the level load mark?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will probably be asked to remove any rubbish higher than the level load line. This means that you can not use sheets of timber, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you select the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We would be happy to help.

Which size skips have a door?

Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Aberystwyth?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to receive permission from the local council in Aberystwyth, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Other areas covered include Goodwick, St Clears, Llandysul, Tregaron, Narberth, Laugharne, Whitland and Neyland.
