Holyhead Skip Hire FAQs

When will my skip be delivered?

We can typically supply skips to Holyhead the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program gives you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need the skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Which size skips have got a drop down door?

When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, however they are less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.

What waste can I put in the skip?

Prior to hiring a skip, it is important to ensure that the type of waste you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, like timber, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

Am I able to throw away electrical products 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 be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items like washing machines, TVs, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of large volumes of waste. Predominantly, these type of containers are used for commercial applications. However, household clients may also hire them. It is very important consider the area they occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are fantastic for a multitude of domestic and commercial tasks. These are the largest skips that can be used for weighty builders waste like garden soil, rubble and gravel.

If I want a skip on the road in Holyhead, will I need to have a permit?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste streams, such as wood, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout 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 guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

How much will skip hire in Holyhead cost?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Holyhead, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we provide in your location and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.

Is it ok to load my skip higher than level load line?

I’m afraid not. You must only load the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
