Below are examples of frequently asked questions we receive about our skip hire service.
Blackwood Skip Hire FAQs
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Blackwood?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic items such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods have to be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
How much will skip hire in Blackwood cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Blackwood, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each one costs to hire. If the skip is going on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before getting your skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of rubbish you intend to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, like bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Will you deliver to other areas in Gwent?
Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to household and business customers throughout Gwent and elsewhere in the UK.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to empty any materials above the level load line. This means you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be glad to help.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.
However, when this is not feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How can I order a skip?
Ordering a skip in Blackwood through us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you want and then input a few details about when and where you want your skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered to you.
What size skips have got a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, such as metal, paper, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Will a Blackwood skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Blackwood and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients also. Having said that, you need lots of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, RORO containers should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Blackwood companies with a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition materials, like soil, concrete and bricks.
Although labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
