How do I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the street). After that, pick the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Cardigan on the date you have selected.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door will make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like garden soil and rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items like household furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electronic items including old TVs, freezers, printers 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.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Cardigan where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Is it ok to load up the skip above the top?
You must not fill up the skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being collected.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Can you deliver skips across Dyfed?
We provide a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Cardigan, Fishguard, Neyland, Newcastle Emlyn or any other site in Dyfed, we are able to assist.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Cardigan?
This depends upon the skip size you want and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to access where you need it located, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not likely to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located at a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Will a Cardigan skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
If I would like a skip on the road in Cardigan, will I need to have a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a domestic task, then your drive will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Cardigan. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can generally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of giving a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and construction work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which can be used for hefty materials such as soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be hired by residential customers as well. Having said that, you should have a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.
What kinds of rubbish can you throw in a skip?
Before hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of rubbish you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as timber, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be discarded separately from general waste.
Other areas covered include Fishguard, Neyland, Newcastle Emlyn, Llandysul, Aberystwyth, Narberth, New Quay and Tregaron.
