Conwy Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

How much does skip hire in Conwy cost?

The price of getting a skip in Conwy will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip placed on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Conwy?

We can normally supply skips to Conwy the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program gives you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Conwy?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.

Should you have 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 can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, you will save some money.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being home when the skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip can be located precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, when you can’t be around for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.

What size skips have got a door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door makes loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste such as garden soil and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky items like household furniture easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients too. However, you will require a good amount 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.

Due to the size, these containers can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

What happens to the waste?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Conwy where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How big is a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often used for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, such as earth, concrete and bricks.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Will a skip hire company from Conwy deliver my skip?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Conwy. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to be sure they satisfy the high principles we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electronic products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods should be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Am I able to dispose of all kinds of waste in a skip?

This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which will result from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we collect in skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and other household objects.

There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This includes any electrical objects (dishwashers, TVs and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to adhere to a completely different process to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe to move, and you can be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be collected.
