Cwmbrân Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

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

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste streams, including timber, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric items such as washing machines, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

What is the cost of skip hire in Cwmbrân?

The cost of hiring a skip in Cwmbrân is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What skip sizes can you offer?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Cwmbrân, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY work.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clear ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

To get more information about the various skip sizes available, such as measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How do you order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). Then, choose the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Cwmbrân on the date you have selected.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that generate large amounts of waste materials.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for building work. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Cwmbrân?

As we offer a national skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this is not possible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cwmbrân?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you must obtain permission from the local council in Cwmbrân, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

Can you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to domestic and industrial customers across Gwent and anywhere else within the UK.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this provides you with plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What things can I put in the skip?

A skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of materials produced from construction work, garden projects and home clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types can include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are accepted, so whether you wish to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and things you throw into the skip may vary based on which size skip you hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like get rid of soil and hardcore, for example, the biggest size container you will be able to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are a few waste materials which you will not be able to put in your skip. The reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous components that may damage the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, so they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.

Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You must only load your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Other areas covered include Newbridge, Blaenavon, Risca, Caerleon, Rhymney, Tredegar, Ystrad Mynach and Nantyglo.
