Criccieth Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Gwynedd?
Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to both household and industrial customers across Gwynedd and anywhere else within the UK.
Am I able to throw away electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric products like washing machines, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
What happens to the waste?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into a range of waste types, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How much does skip hire in Criccieth cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Criccieth will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Criccieth?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
How do you order a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Criccieth with us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you want and then input a few details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building projects. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as garden soil, rubble and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Am I able to put all kinds of waste in the skip?
You can throw a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed too. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in your skip.
However, there are things that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible environment or health risk they can trigger.
You can not throw out your refrigerator, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous components in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Please email us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Is it ok to load my skip above level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you can be asked to take off the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
Will a Criccieth skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, like soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, they are the most common sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.
We also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can in most cases keep your skip for as many as two weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred collection date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and we will arrange the collection. Usually, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over hectic periods.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
If you manage a business in Criccieth and want to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the label implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can access where you need it located, we will manage everything.
If you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Criccieth?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are doing a residential project, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Criccieth. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for domestic work like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
