Barmouth Skip Hire FAQs

How fast can you deliver a skip to Barmouth?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.

Do you deliver skips across Gwynedd?

Indeed, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout Gwynedd, including Barmouth, Porthmadog, Bethesda and Beaumaris. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips come in a selection of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent option for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Barmouth and the rest of the country. All of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Barmouth where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much does skip hire in Barmouth cost?

The price of hiring a skip in Barmouth depends on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How do I hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). After that, pick the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Barmouth on the day you have selected.

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

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure authorisation from the local authority in Barmouth, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

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

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of waste. Predominantly, these skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic customers can also order them. It is very important think about the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be utilised for light-weight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for domestic jobs such as modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers used to discard weighty construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.

A builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the loft, these large skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.

Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?

It is vital to not overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overfill your skip, you might be asked to take away the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is prohibited.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.

The same thing applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What can I put in the skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that may come from garden projects, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we pick up in skips include garden soil, timber, tree cuttings, cabinets, baths, and other household products.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electronic objects (tumble dryers, TVs or cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.

Am I allowed to put electrical items in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This can include such things as laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. Electric products can’t be discarded in your skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.

Other areas covered include Porthmadog, Bethesda, Beaumaris, Amlwch, Menai Bridge, Rhosgadfan, Nefyn and Dolgellau.
