Ferndale Skip Hire FAQs
Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Ferndale?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Ferndale and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will probably be asked to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you order the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
What can I put in my skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste in the skip. This can include timber, tile, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in your skip.
There are, however, a few things that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they could cause.
You cannot get rid of your refrigerator, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a company in Ferndale and want to get rid of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.
Am I able to throw electrical items in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This can include such things as laptops or computers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in the skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can typically have the skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You can give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Ferndale?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Ferndale. Choose which size you want to order, and confirm if it will be dropped on your own property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this is not feasible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Ferndale?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Ferndale, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip is going to be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ferndale?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of heavy construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the garden shed, these big skips are usually the most affordable solution available.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into various waste streams, which includes stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do you deliver skips across Mid Glamorgan?
Yes, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas across Mid Glamorgan, including Ferndale, Treherbert, Abercynon and Porthcawl. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What size skips can you deliver?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Ferndale, you have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for light waste, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
