Colwyn Bay Skip Hire FAQs

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Colwyn Bay?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Colwyn Bay, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost you to order. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste materials. Generally, these skips are used for commercial purposes. However, residential clients can also order them. It is very important think about the area they occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Colwyn Bay where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

This site offers a whole selection of skip sizes to household and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags

Will a skip hire company from Colwyn Bay deliver my skip?

Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified companies. These include small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Colwyn Bay?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.

Do all skips have a drop door?

If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop door, though they are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Colwyn Bay?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and result in injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products like cookers, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.

Will you deliver skips across Clwyd?

Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to residential and commercial customers across Clwyd and anywhere else within the UK.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Colwyn Bay?

Ordering a skip in Colwyn Bay through us is very straightforward. Choose the skip size you require and enter a couple of details about where and when you need your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are perfect for a multitude of household and commercial tasks. They are the largest sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste like dirt, rubble and bricks.

What things can I put in my skip?

You can put a variety of waste into the skip. This can include timber, tile, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in a skip.

There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risks they could trigger.

You can’t throw out your freezer, television or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Please email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Other areas covered include Llanfairfechan, Rhuddlan, Llanrwst, Penmaenmawr, St Asaph, Denbigh, Prestatyn and Shotton.
