Llanfyllin Skip Hire FAQs
What is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip that is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition work, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for heavy waste matter like dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Llanfyllin?
Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Llanfyllin. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have the skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Is it okay to load up the skip higher than level load line?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you risk being required to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container will be dangerous, as waste could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please ensure that you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for business uses. However, domestic clients can also hire them. You should take into account the area they take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for lightweight waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
How long can I hire a skip for?
Usually, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
What skip sizes can you offer?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Llanfyllin businesses which produce a big quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Llanfyllin?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Llanfyllin. We make use of a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to be sure they satisfy the high expectations we require regarding service, price and environmental performance.
Can I get a skip that has a drop door?
In general, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Llanfyllin?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
How do you order a skip?
We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your delivery postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Llanfyllin. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you want the skip to be delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to verify the transaction as soon as your order is complete!
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, if you can’t be available during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Will you deliver skips across Powys?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can supply skips to both residential and industrial customers across Powys and elsewhere within the UK.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Llanfyllin where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that could come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we find in skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, as well as other household objects.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electrical products (fridges and freezers, TVs or computers for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them needs to comply with an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted trip.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered items such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods should be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
