Harlech Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to throw electronic products in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric products including tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Harlech?
This will depend on the skip size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

How long can I hire the skip for?
Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suitable for numerous household and industrial projects. They are the largest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as dirt, stone and concrete.
What skip sizes can have a drop down door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
Will a skip hire company from Harlech deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Harlech. We work with a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to ensure they fulfill the high standards we require with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is vital never to overload a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a business in Harlech and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
How do you order a skip in Harlech?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). After that, select the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Harlech on the day you have chosen.
What can I put in the skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that may come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most frequent items that we pick up in skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen units, baths, as well as other household items.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical products (dishwashers, televisions and printers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and disposing of them must adhere to a completely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Harlech?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to obtain permission from your local authority in Harlech, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before booking that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into several different waste streams, which includes stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill 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 home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Harlech, you will have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
To get more details about the different skip sizes offered, including proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the order process.
