Kidwelly Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Kidwelly the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system provides you with various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Kidwelly?
As we offer a national waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will the skip have a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic tasks.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste.
What is the cost of skip hire in Kidwelly?
The price of getting a skip in Kidwelly is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Will you deliver to other areas in Dyfed?
Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations throughout Dyfed, such as Kidwelly, Burry Port, Goodwick and Llanybydder. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.
If you are not likely to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your property. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are fantastic for numerous residential and industrial projects. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to remove any contents over the level load mark. This also means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you require. We will be glad to help.
If I would like a skip on a road in Kidwelly, will I need a permit?
Generally, it is possible to get the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you will need to get consent from your local authority in Kidwelly, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
What kinds of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed too. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risk they might trigger.
You are unable to throw in your fridge freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this material. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How large is the mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for domestic work including modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Kidwelly with us is very easy. Choose the skip size you need and then input a handful of details about where and when you need the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electrical products such as old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
