Bridgend Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep the skip for?
The regular hire period will be two weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full earlier than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this is not always the case at busier times. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are perfect for a wide variety of household and business tasks. They are the largest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste like dirt, rubble and concrete.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a business in Bridgend and wish to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are lifted by using chains.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (such as a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
Is it okay to fill the skip above the side?
It is important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please make sure you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How can I hire a skip?
We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Bridgend. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you want your skip delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to confirm the order once your order is complete!
What are the different skip sizes available?
Skips come in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also offer 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What happens to the waste once the skip is collected?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Bridgend where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Will a Bridgend skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These include small local skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Can you deliver skips across Mid Glamorgan?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Bridgend, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Mid Glamorgan. Through a network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Bridgend, Treharris or Tonypandy, we have got it covered.
Can I have a skip which has a drop door?
Having a skip with a drop down door makes filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste like soil and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky objects like furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bridgend?
Generally, it is possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you must have consent from the local authority in Bridgend, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bridgend?
This will depend on the size you want and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are able to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip depends on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or top soil, the maximum size you could hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old TVs, refrigerators, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
