Glyn-neath Skip Hire FAQs

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

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

It usually is best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

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

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Electrical objects including TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods need to be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

What waste can I put in my skip?

A skip can be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of items produced from building work, garden projects and house clearances. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste materials are allowed, therefore whether you wish to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you throw into your skip can vary depending on which size skip you ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to get rid of garden soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you will be allowed to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are some materials that you are not able to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that these goods incorporate hazardous materials that may be harmful to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they must be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Some of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How big is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

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

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the top?

It is essential to not overload your skip. You can not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that if you overfill your skip, you might be required to remove the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip that is hired throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building tasks, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest option that you can use for heavy materials like dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Glyn-neath?

Ideally, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic task, then your drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Glyn-neath. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

What happens to the waste?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

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

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.

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

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these containers are used for business uses. However, residential clients can also use them. You will need to take into account the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for light-weight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.

What skip sizes can you offer?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Glyn-neath, you have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

For more information about the different capacities available, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Other areas covered include Loughor, Pontardawe, Gorseinon, Pontarddulais, Port Talbot, Neath and Swansea.
