This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What skip sizes do you offer?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Gorseinon, you will have several sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are great for house tidy ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the various skip sizes offered, including measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we can access where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.
In the event you are not likely to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you may need the skip to be located at a particular side of the drive. Or you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
What is a builders skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of weighty building waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
The builders skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these big containers will often be the most affordable solution available.
What happens to the rubbish?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into several different waste types, such as wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the top?
You must not load the skip past the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off any extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical products like washing machines, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Glamorgan?
Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas across West Glamorgan, such as Gorseinon, Pontardawe, Port Talbot and Pontarddulais. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Gorseinon?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.
What skip sizes have a drop door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Gorseinon?
Generally, it will be possible to have a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you have got to get approval from your local authority in Gorseinon, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What sort of rubbish am I able to get rid of in a skip?
It is possible to put a variety of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risk they might cause.
You cannot throw out your fridge, computer or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from normal rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this material. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this gives you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with the skip sooner, 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.
