Caernarfon Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport significant volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. You have to look at the space they take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.

What skip sizes do you supply?

We offer a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for bigger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Caernarfon companies which have a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Caernarfon?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic goods including cookers, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips used to discard weighty building and construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.

A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the garage, these big skips are often the most affordable solution available.

Will a Caernarfon skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Caernarfon. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to make certain they satisfy the high standards we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the online order process.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

It is important to not overload the skip. You must not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you could be required to take off the surplus waste. However safe you believe the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

What types of rubbish can I put in a skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, it is important to make sure that the type of waste materials you wish to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to throw out building and construction waste, such as wood, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

How much does skip hire in Caernarfon cost?

The price of hiring a skip in Caernarfon is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip firms and is designed for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we can access the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.

For those who are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions are passed on to the delivery driver.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Other areas covered include Pwllheli, Criccieth, Beaumaris, Llangefni, Rhosgadfan, Harlech, Porthmadog and Holyhead.
