Caerleon Skip Hire FAQs
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport large volumes of waste. Primarily, these type of containers are used for commercial uses. However, residential clients may also use them. It is important to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.
What skip sizes do you offer?
We offer a whole selection of skip sizes to domestic and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different skip sizes offered, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip 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

Can I load my skip higher than the top?
You must not load a skip past the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and televisions. These products can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Can you deliver skips across Gwent?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can provide skips to domestic and industrial customers across Gwent and anywhere else in the UK.
How can I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the road). Then, select the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Caerleon on the date you have selected.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Caerleon?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Caerleon. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to ensure they fulfill the high standards we demand regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
How big is a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are fantastic for a wide variety of residential and business projects. They are the biggest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like dirt, rubble and bricks.
Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in a skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risks they could cause.
You can not throw out your fridge freezer, television or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Feel free to contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, although these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
If I need a skip on the road in Caerleon, will I need a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.
