Connah’s Quay Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver skips across Clwyd?

Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations across Clwyd, including Connah’s Quay, Colwyn Bay, Llangollen and Penmaenmawr. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a chosen pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during hectic times.

Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic items should be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be located precisely where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

Having said that, if that is not feasible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and we will handle everything.

Will a Connah’s Quay skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Connah’s Quay and the rest of the country. All of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, cardboard, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

Am I able to throw all types of waste in the skip?

You can fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip depends on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction waste like rubble or soil, the biggest size you could get is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Connah’s Quay?

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

Should you need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.

How much does skip hire in Connah’s Quay cost?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Connah’s Quay, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your town and how much each option will cost to hire. If your skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

Is it ok to load up the skip above the top?

I’m afraid not. You must only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to remove the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

What size is a builder’s skip?

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

These large skips are perfect for a wide variety of residential and business tasks. They are the biggest skips that can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, rubble and bricks.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and stone. But they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size skips have got a drop door?

Generally, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large industrial size skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate significant volumes of waste.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.
