Cowbridge Skip Hire FAQs

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Cowbridge?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Cowbridge. We utilize a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to ensure they fulfill the high expectations we demand in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

When you are selecting 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 construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, although these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.

Can I throw all kinds of waste in my skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that could come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.

Among the most typical things that we collect in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, cabinets, sinks, and various household objects.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical items (tumble dryers, TVs and computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them has to follow a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Do you deliver skips across South Glamorgan?

In addition to delivering skips to Cowbridge, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout South Glamorgan. Through our network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Cowbridge, Cardiff or Penarth, we have got it covered.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.

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

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most typical sizes used by builders for construction waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

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

Guide to skip sizes

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.

What happens to the waste?

The items in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, including metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

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

What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these containers are used for industrial purposes. However, domestic customers can also order them. It is important to think about the area they take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light-weight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.

Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?

It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as objects could fall and result in injury or damage to others.

To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Cowbridge?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a household task, then a driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or other public property in Cowbridge. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Am I allowed to throw electronic products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical goods like washing machines, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Our normal hire period is two weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are great for numerous types of household and industrial projects. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste such as soil, stone and gravel.
