Blaina Skip Hire FAQs

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to view all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Blaina. Pick the size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be located on private property.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Blaina?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Blaina, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost you to hire. If your skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
Am I allowed to load the skip above level load mark?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please ensure that you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Blaina, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them great for house clearances including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
To get more information regarding the different skip sizes available, such as measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you operate a business in Blaina and want to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to discard weighty building and demolition waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your loft space, these big containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic items including old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
What can I put in my skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in your skip.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they can cause.
You can’t throw out your fridge, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Do I have to be there when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we are able to manage everything.
If you will not be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular side of your driveway. Or you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the case may be, let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Will a skip hire company from Blaina deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Blaina where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually provide a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
Do you deliver skips across Gwent?
Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can provide skips to residential and industrial customers across Gwent and anywhere else within the UK.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Blaina?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or home, you need to secure authorisation from your local council in Blaina, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit will often take up to two working days.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
