Burry Port Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste types, including timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electronic products including old TVs, fridges, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
What is the cost of skip hire in Burry Port?
The price of getting a skip in Burry Port depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip is situated precisely where you want it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
However, if that is not feasible, you don’t have to stress. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
How long does it take to get a skip in Burry Port?
We can typically deliver skips to Burry Port the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a variety of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want a skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
How big is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that you can use for heavy waste like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Burry Port?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to receive permission from the local authority in Burry Port, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Burry Port companies which produce a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed also. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they may trigger.
You cannot throw in your fridge freezer, laptop or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Please contact us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door can make filling rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky objects like household furniture easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
How do you hire a skip online?
We have built our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to type in your address to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to supply in Burry Port. Select the right size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you need the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the order once your order is done!
Is it ok to fill the skip above the top?
You must not load the skip past the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being collected.

We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Burry Port, St Davids, Kidwelly, Whitland or any other site in Dyfed, we are able to help.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips that are used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Other areas covered include St Davids, Kidwelly, Whitland, Carmarthen, Newcastle Emlyn, Milford Haven, Goodwick and Llanelli.
