Amlwch Skip Hire FAQs

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

It is vital to not overload a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. However secure you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you manage a company in Amlwch and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We are able to provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for more substantial jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Amlwch businesses which have a significant volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

You may use a skip to get rid of a variety of waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of materials produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and things you throw in the skip will vary according to the size skip you hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use will be the 8 yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few materials that you are not permitted to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that some products contain hazardous elements which could damage the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.

A few of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be located precisely where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this is not achievable, you don’t have to stress. Simply tell us when making your booking, and we will handle everything.

Do you deliver to other areas in Gwynedd?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Amlwch, Bangor, Menai Bridge, Bethesda or any other area in Gwynedd, we can help.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for up to 14 days from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic times.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Amlwch?

Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Amlwch. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip situated on the street or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip hired in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building projects, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest size that can be used for heavy waste like dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

Where will my rubbish go when the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste materials, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

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

Do you use local skip hire companies in Amlwch?

As we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These range from small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electrical items including old TVs, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.

How long will it take to get a skip in Amlwch?

We can in most cases supply skips to Amlwch the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking system will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?

Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t 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.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Amlwch?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you will need to get authorisation from your local council in Amlwch, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

How do you order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (such as the street). Then, pick the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Amlwch on the date you have chosen.

Other areas covered include Bangor, Menai Bridge, Bethesda, Dolgellau, Pwllheli, Harlech, Porthmadog and Y Bala.
