Barry Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste materials.

Will a Barry skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Barry and the rest of the country. All of our partner businesses are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical items such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

What waste can I put in the skip?

Your skip may be used to dispose of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous materials from construction jobs, garden projects and household clearances. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials will be permitted, therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you discard in the skip can vary based on which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard garden soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there items which I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few items you will not be permitted to discard in the skip. The reason for this is that these items contain hazardous materials which can be damaging to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Barry?

This will depend on the size you want and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

Will you deliver skips across South Glamorgan?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Barry, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout South Glamorgan. With the help of a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Barry, Llantwit Major or Cowbridge, we have got you covered.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can typically offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

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

It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.

The same goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Which size skips will have a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door helps make filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials like soil and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this 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 absolute best to deliver this.

If I need a skip on the road in Barry, will I need a permit?

Usually, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you need to get approval from the local council in Barry, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option which you can use for heavy materials like dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for as long as 14 days from the date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy times.

Where does my waste go once the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Barry firms with a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

No, you can only load the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to take away the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Other areas covered include Llantwit Major, Cowbridge, Cardiff and Penarth.
