Llandrindod Wells Skip Hire FAQs

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Llandrindod Wells?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (such as the street). Next, select the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Llandrindod Wells on the day you have selected.

Can I fill my skip higher than the level load line?

It is important to not overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is prohibited.

Will you deliver skips across Powys?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Llandrindod Wells, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Powys. With the help of our network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Llandrindod Wells, Brecon or Llanfyllin, we have got you covered.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed 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 contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods including tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be situated precisely where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when making your order, and we will handle the rest.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Llandrindod Wells?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Llandrindod Wells. We employ a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are assessed to make sure they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

What sort of rubbish am I allowed to throw in a skip?

You are able to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, soil, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or soil, the largest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

What skip sizes can you provide?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Llandrindod Wells, you will have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY work.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are perfect for house clearances including large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

For additional information about the different skip sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

The waste in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, cardboard, rubble and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are ideal for a multitude of residential and business projects. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like garden soil, rubble and bricks.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you will need plenty of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, these skips should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

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

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop down door makes loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials such as dirt or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier too.

Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can normally deliver skips to Llandrindod Wells the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will give you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Llandrindod Wells?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Llandrindod Wells. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the road or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Llandrindod Wells?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you will need to get authorisation from your local council in Llandrindod Wells, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

Other areas covered include Brecon, Llanfyllin, Llanwrtyd Wells, Knighton, Newtown, Rhayader, Llanidloes and Builth Wells.
