Knighton Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection time when placing your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
Am I allowed to load up the skip above the top?
It is essential to never overload a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you could be asked to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you think the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
If I would like a skip on the road in Knighton, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
Do you deliver skips across Powys?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Powys and anywhere else in the UK.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the largest option which can be used for heavy materials such as garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Knighton?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Knighton, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your town and how much each size will cost you to hire.

Where will my waste go once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What can I put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, it is important to ensure that the kind of waste materials you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as wood, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of significant quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these containers are used for industrial applications. However, residential customers can also order them. It is important to consider the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and hardcore.
How many different skip sizes are available?
This site offers a complete range of skip sizes to household and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sized skips offered, with a rough idea of how much waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
Generally, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Knighton?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically give you a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a road), you need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Knighton?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Knighton. We make use of a network of both local and national providers to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly vetted to guarantee they match the high expectations we demand in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
