Builth Wells Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Builth Wells?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we use an extensive network of verified businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home on the day it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when making your booking, and then we will handle everything.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically offer a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Builth Wells, you will have multiple sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For more information about the different skip sizes offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in the skip?

Electrical objects such as TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Builth Wells?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Builth Wells. Choose which size you wish to hire, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on your own property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop down door?

When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop door, however they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can usually have the skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. You are able to give a chosen collection day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy periods.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, such as soil, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are fantastic for an array of residential and industrial projects. They are the biggest sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and concrete.

Can you deliver skips across Powys?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells, Llanwrtyd Wells, Llanfyllin or any other location in Powys, we can help.

How much will skip hire in Builth Wells cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Builth Wells is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip on the highway, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Builth Wells?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you need to secure authorisation from the local council in Builth Wells, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

Is it ok to load my skip higher than level load mark?

It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excess waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since moving an overloaded container is hazardous, as materials could drop and cause injuries or damage to others.

To avoid this problem, please ensure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You can fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or garden soil, the largest size you could use is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic clients too. However, you will need a lot of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.

Other areas covered include Llandrindod Wells, Llanwrtyd Wells, Llanfyllin, Welshpool, Machynlleth, Ystradgynlais, Brecon and Llanidloes.
