Chepstow Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic items such as old televisions, fridges, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
The items in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
Will you deliver to other areas in Gwent?
Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to areas across Gwent, such as Chepstow, Ystrad Mynach, Brynmawr and Blaina. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Which size skips have got a door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, although they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
Before getting a skip, you must ensure that the type of rubbish you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip which is used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste materials like garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
If you manage a business in Chepstow and need to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How can I order a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your delivery address to look at the range of skips we are able to deliver to Chepstow. Pick the size you wish to order, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Will a skip hire company from Chepstow deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Chepstow?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local authority in Chepstow, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.
How long does it take to get a skip in Chepstow?
We can in most cases supply skips to Chepstow the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system gives you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Chepstow, you will have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them great for house clear ups involving large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
For more information about the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Our normal hire period will be two weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can choose a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is full earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
How much does skip hire in Chepstow cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Chepstow depends on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to load my skip above the top?
It is essential to not overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overload the skip, you could be required to take off the excess rubbish. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is prohibited.
