Below are some of the typical questions we have received with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.

Fishguard Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Fishguard?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door makes filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like soil and concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

Is it okay to load up my skip higher than level load mark?

It is essential to not overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you could be asked to take away the excess rubbish. However safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Do you deliver to other areas in Dyfed?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas throughout Dyfed, including Fishguard, Pembroke, Newcastle Emlyn and Llandovery. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in a skip?

Your skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling lots of materials produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different waste materials are allowed, so whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and things you discard in the skip will vary based on the size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like discard top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

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

There are some waste materials which you are not permitted to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some products contain hazardous materials which could be harmful to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.

Some of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How much will skip hire in Fishguard cost?

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

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

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

Can I throw away electronic items in the skip?

This includes all electronic goods such as washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a volume of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Fishguard where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Will a Fishguard skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we offer a national waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of weighty building waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the attic, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial size skips used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate significant quantities of waste.

Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you want it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates limit access.

On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you don’t have to worry. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.

Other areas covered include Pembroke, Newcastle Emlyn, Llandovery, Carmarthen, St Davids, Haverfordwest, Whitland and Tregaron.
