Ebbw Vale Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Ebbw Vale where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Ebbw Vale?

This depends on the size you want and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You can use a skip to discard many different waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing numerous materials produced from building work, garden projects and home clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste products can include:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many different waste types are allowed, and therefore whether you want to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and things you throw into the skip can vary based on the size skip you have ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like get rid of soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you would be able to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few waste items which you are not permitted to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that these goods include hazardous components which may damage the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately within UK laws.

Examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in the skip?

Electronic products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Is it okay to load the skip higher than level load line?

No, you must only fill your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you may be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.

If I need a skip on the road in Ebbw Vale, will I need to get a permit?

Generally, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you will need to have consent from the local authority in Ebbw Vale, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can normally hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to get rid of heavy construction materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or clay.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the loft space, these big skips will often be the most affordable choice available.

Will a skip hire company from Ebbw Vale deliver my skip?

As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

Can you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to residential and industrial customers across Gwent and elsewhere in the UK.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?

It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you want it.

The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household customers also. However, you will want a lot of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.

For Ebbw Vale businesses which produce a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do I hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Then, select the day you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Ebbw Vale on the date you have chosen.

Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?

In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Other areas covered include Abersychan, Rhymney, Newport, Brynmawr, Abercarn, Abergavenny, Nantyglo and Caerphilly.
