Flint Skip Hire FAQs
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips used to discard heavy construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the shed, these big skips will often be the most affordable option available.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.
In the event you will not be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, including soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products such as cookers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Do you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?
Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and industrial customers across Clwyd and elsewhere within the UK.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial scale skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Flint?
Generally, it will be possible to get the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you have got to have permission from the local authority in Flint, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste in the skip. This can include timber, tile, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
However, there are things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environment or health risk they could trigger.
You can’t throw out your freezer, laptop or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous components in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from general waste.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Feel free to email us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Flint businesses which generate a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the cost of skip hire in Flint?
Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Flint. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip placed on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
Will a Flint skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Flint and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How big is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Is it okay to fill up the skip higher than the top?
It is important to not overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be required to remove the surplus waste. However secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is not allowed.
