Crickhowell Skip Hire FAQs
What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is essential to check that the sort of waste you intend to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
Am I allowed to throw electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like printers, hobs, washing machines, freezers and computer monitors. Electronic products can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Crickhowell?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Crickhowell, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each option will cost to order. If the skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
What will happen to the rubbish?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Crickhowell where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Do you deliver skips across Powys?
Yes, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations across Powys, including Crickhowell, Presteigne, Builth Wells and Knighton. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Crickhowell, you will have numerous options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them well suited for house tidy ups involving large items like furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further details about the various sizes available, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to discard heavy building and construction waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or clay.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of tasks. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your loft, these big containers will often be the most affordable solution available.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can normally hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to access where you need it located, we will take care of everything.
When you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Crickhowell. We make use of a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to make sure they match the high principles we require when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a company in Crickhowell and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Crickhowell?
In most cases, it is possible to get your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you have got to get permission from your local authority in Crickhowell, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Crickhowell?
We have designed our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your delivery postcode to view all the different skip sizes we can supply in Crickhowell. Select the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to verify the order as soon as your booking is complete!
What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop-down door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
How long will it take to get a skip in Crickhowell?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.
Is it ok to fill up the skip above the level load mark?
It is important to not overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded skip is hazardous, as objects could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
