Betws-Y-Coed Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Betws-Y-Coed deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
If I want a skip on the road in Betws-Y-Coed, will I need to get a permit?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to receive permission from the local authority in Betws-Y-Coed, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid not, as electrical products like old TVs, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above level load mark?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as waste could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
What kinds of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
Your skip can be used to dispose of a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous items generated from building work, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Home furnishings
- Hedge cuttings
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different waste types are allowed, so whether you need to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and materials you put in the skip may vary according to the size skip you have hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard soil and bricks, for example, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What type of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are some waste materials that you are not permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that some items include hazardous elements that may be harmful to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.
A few examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Car tyres
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you manage a business in Betws-Y-Coed and wish to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the label implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates restrict access.
However, if this isn’t possible, you do not have to worry. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
How much does skip hire in Betws-Y-Coed cost?
This will depend on the size you will need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Betws-Y-Coed?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). After that, pick the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Betws-Y-Coed on the day you have selected.
What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, including soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can give a chosen collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished, and we will organise the collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic times.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price 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 will not make a difference.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for numerous domestic and commercial tasks. They are the largest skips that can be used for heavy builders waste including soil, rubble and concrete.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like furniture.
