Dolgellau Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a range of waste streams, such as timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients too. However, you need a lot of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suited to an array of domestic and commercial tasks. These are the largest skip sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste such as dirt, rubble and bricks.

What is the cost of skip hire in Dolgellau?

The price of getting a skip in Dolgellau will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What size skips can have a door?

Virtually all containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, they are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What kinds of waste am I able to put in a skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using the skip for heavy building waste including stone or soil, the maximum size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Do you deliver skips across Gwynedd?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to both domestic and commercial customers across Gwynedd and elsewhere within the UK.

How long will it take to get a skip in Dolgellau?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will typically give you a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this is not achievable, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when you are making your booking, and we will take care of everything.

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

No, you cannot put old electronic waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, hobs, washing machines, freezers and tv sets. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Dolgellau?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to view all the different skips we can deliver to Dolgellau. Pick which size you wish to order, and confirm if it will be delivered on private property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.

When your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

No, you can only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Dolgellau?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you need to secure permission from the local council in Dolgellau, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
