Caerphilly Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do skips come in?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Caerphilly companies which generate a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you have a business in Caerphilly and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips available.
As the name implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, though they are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size is best. We will be glad to help.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction work. There are usually two sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, like soil, rubble and stone.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Caerphilly?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Will you deliver skips across Gwent?
As well as delivering skips to Caerphilly, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Gwent. Through a network of regional and national waste management companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Caerphilly, Ebbw Vale or Cwmbrân, we have got you covered.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
Electrical objects like television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods should be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Caerphilly?
The cost of hiring a skip in Caerphilly will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How can I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Caerphilly through us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about where and when you want the skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered.
What size is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is known as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for domestic jobs such as small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a range of waste types, including timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with 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 spot, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Caerphilly and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What can I put in the skip?
You can throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed also. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they can cause.
You can not get rid of your refrigerator, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Please contact us for additional 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.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not possible, you don’t need to worry. Just let us know when placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
