Carmarthen Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products like tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Is it ok to load up my skip above level load line?
You should not load your skip past the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
How do I order a skip?
We have designed our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your address to view the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Carmarthen. Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of where and when you would like your skip delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm the order once your booking is done!
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we are able to manage everything.
In the event you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.
No matter what the case may be, tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in the skip?
Before getting your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste materials you intend to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can discard in your skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general waste.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be used by household clients also. Having said that, you will require lots of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roro skips should only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Carmarthen?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Carmarthen?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suitable for numerous types of residential and business jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and concrete.
Can you deliver skips across Dyfed?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to provide skips to both residential and commercial customers across Dyfed and elsewhere in the UK.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
Skips are available in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also supply 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
What happens to the waste?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a range of waste types, including timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do all skips come with a drop door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, although these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Carmarthen?
The price of getting a skip in Carmarthen is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
