Brecon Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to dispose of all types of rubbish in the skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste which can result from garden work, building work and home clearances.

Among the most typical things which we pick up in skips include soil, wood, bush trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and other household items.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges, TVs and printers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them has to comply with a completely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.

The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

This site offers a whole range of skip capacities to domestic and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different skip sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Do you use local skip hire companies in Brecon?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Brecon?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you have got to obtain permission from the local authority in Brecon, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before ordering that getting the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Brecon?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will typically offer a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a highway), you must gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition work. There are typically two different sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for various other household and business waste disposal tasks.

As well as delivering skips to Brecon, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Powys. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold 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 the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that will give you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Am I able to put electronic products in the skip?

No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

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

Can I fill my skip above the top?

You should not load a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe to move, and you may be asked to remove any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a company in Brecon and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Other areas covered include Llandrindod Wells, Talgarth, Montgomery, Machynlleth, Presteigne, Llanfyllin, Llanidloes and Crickhowell.
