Hay-on-Wye Skip Hire FAQs

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you will need lots of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products like old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are suited to numerous household and industrial projects. They are the largest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including soil, stone and concrete.

What is the cost of skip hire in Hay-on-Wye?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Hay-on-Wye, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each one costs to order. If the skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

Will a skip hire company from Hay-on-Wye deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like soil or rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Hay-on-Wye firms which generate a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.

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

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

Can I put all kinds of waste in the skip?

This is amongst the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that could come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we pick up in our skips include soil, timber, hedge cuttings, kitchen units, baths, and various other household objects.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electronic products (fridges and freezers, TVs and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to follow a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed deliveries will lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Will you deliver skips across Powys?

Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can provide skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Powys and anywhere else in the UK.

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

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to manage everything.

In the event you are not likely to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your drive. Or you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder use of your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.

How can I order a skip online?

We have designed our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your address to view the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Hay-on-Wye. Pick the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of where and when you want the skip delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send an email to verify the transaction once your booking is complete!

What happens to the waste?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into various waste types, including timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hay-on-Wye?

Preferably, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. If you are doing a residential task, then your driveway will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Hay-on-Wye. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as objects could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you order a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some extra waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
