Llanelli Skip Hire FAQs
Do you use local skip hire companies in Llanelli?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
No. You are only allowed to load the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Llanelli?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will have to get authorisation from the local authority in Llanelli, which is called a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
This site offers a full range of skip capacities to household and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This can include such things as printers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. Electrical items can’t be discarded in a skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What is the cost of skip hire in Llanelli?
The price of getting a skip in Llanelli will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have a skip placed on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How can I hire a skip in Llanelli?
Ordering a skip in Llanelli through us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you want and enter a few details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The normal hire time frame will be two weeks from your date of delivery. However, when you book your skip, you can choose a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre in or local to Llanelli where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
What kinds of waste can you get rid of in a skip?
You can load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction waste including stone or top soil, the maximum size you could get is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they supply.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is based on the specific size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for domestic tasks including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two skip sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as household furniture.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for business use but can be used by residential customers as well. However, you should have a lot of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, these containers can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.
Will you deliver to other areas in Dyfed?
In addition to delivering skips to Llanelli, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Dyfed. With the help of a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Llanelli, Laugharne or Kidwelly, we have got you covered.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Other areas covered include Laugharne, Kidwelly, St Davids, Newport, Burry Port, Llandovery, Tenby and Haverfordwest.
