Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we get with regards to our skip hire service.
Brynmawr Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver skips across Gwent?
We provide a UK wide skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Brynmawr, Newport, Cwmbrân, Abertillery or another area in Gwent, we are able to assist.
Can I fill the skip above the top?
It is essential to not overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you need it located, we can manage everything.
For those who are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of your drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suitable for numerous residential and business tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Brynmawr?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a household project, then a driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Brynmawr. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you manage a business in Brynmawr and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Brynmawr?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the road). Next, pick the day you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Brynmawr on the date you have selected.
What will happen to the rubbish?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, including metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We provide a complete variety of skip capacities to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of 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

How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
What kinds of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
Your skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items generated from construction work, garden projects and home clearances. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:
- Household furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste materials will be accepted, and therefore whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and materials you throw into your skip can vary according to the size skip you hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard top soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use will be the 8 yard skip.
What type of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?
There are several waste items you are not allowed to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that some items include hazardous materials that may be damaging to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately under UK regulations.
Some of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Car tyres
Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?
Electric powered products including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects must be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
What is the cost of skip hire in Brynmawr?
Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Brynmawr. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for a wasted journey.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.
