Blaenau Ffestiniog Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Blaenau Ffestiniog deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of approved businesses. These include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. These objects can’t be thrown in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

What size is a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are ideal for an array of residential and industrial tasks. They are the biggest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like dirt, stone and concrete.

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

It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Blaenau Ffestiniog, you have several options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY work.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for house clearances involving large items like furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

For further information regarding the different sizes offered, such as measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. Generally, these containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, residential clients can also order them. It is very important think about the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for lightweight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.

Do you deliver to other areas in Gwynedd?

We offer a nationwide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Menai Bridge, Bangor, Tywyn or another site in Gwynedd, we can help.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Blaenau Ffestiniog?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the order process.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

It is essential to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overload your skip, you could be required to remove the surplus waste. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Blaenau Ffestiniog?

The cost of hiring a skip in Blaenau Ffestiniog is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What can I put in my skip?

You can use your skip to throw out a variety of waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of materials from construction work, garden projects and home clearances. Examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials are usually accepted, so whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you throw into your skip may vary depending on which size skip you have chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to get rid of soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

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

There are some items that you are not permitted to get rid of in your skip. The reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components which could cause damage to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately within UK law.

Some of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Blaenau Ffestiniog?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a household job, then a drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Blaenau Ffestiniog. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

How can I hire a skip in Blaenau Ffestiniog?
