Blaenavon Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction work. There are usually two skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including earth, concrete and bricks.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Can I throw away electrical products in the skip?
Electrical items including tv sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods need to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that will give you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like furniture.
Do you deliver to other areas in Gwent?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Blaenavon, Abersychan, Caerleon, Brynmawr or any other area in Gwent, we can assist.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.
Is it ok to load the skip above the top?
It is very important to not overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please ensure you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What is the cost of skip hire in Blaenavon?
This depends upon the size you require and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for the wasted journey.
What things can I put in my skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of waste materials you intend to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may put in your skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, including timber, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are offered in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, they are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Will a skip hire company from Blaenavon deliver my skip?

This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (like the road). After that, choose the day you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Blaenavon on the day you have chosen.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that produce large amounts of waste.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Blaenavon?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
