Caldicot Skip Hire FAQs

Can I fill up the skip higher than the level load line?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will then be asked to remove any contents higher than the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you hire the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We will be pleased to help.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Caldicot. We employ a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are fully vetted to make sure they fulfill the high principles we demand with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the option of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It can take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by residential clients as well. Having said that, you will need a good amount of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, because electronic items such as old televisions, fridges, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.

How do you order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (such as the road). Next, select the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Caldicot on the day you have selected.

Where does the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste types, which includes wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What waste can I put in the skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the kind of rubbish you want to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types it is possible to discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and construction waste, like wood, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from any general waste.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Caldicot?

Generally, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you must get approval from the local council in Caldicot, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can access where you need it delivered, we can manage it all.

In case you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located on a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most popular skip used across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option which you can use for hefty materials such as garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Will you deliver skips across Gwent?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can supply skips to both domestic and commercial customers throughout Gwent and anywhere else in the UK.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, although they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

Other areas covered include Blackwood, Ystrad Mynach, Abersychan, Cwmbrân, Caerleon, Monmouth, Caerphilly and Abercarn.
