Llangollen Skip Hire FAQs

What can I put in the skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that can come from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we pick up in skips include soil, wood, hedge cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household items.

However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electrical objects (fridges, monitors or cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause harm to the environment.

How do I hire a skip in Llangollen?

Ordering a skip in Llangollen with us is incredibly straightforward. Decide on the skip size you will need and then input a few details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Llangollen?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Llangollen, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost you to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.

Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the side?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you may have to remove any materials above the level load line. This means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you hire the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be happy to help.

Which skip sizes have a drop down door?

For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, though these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.

What is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these large containers are often the most cost-effective choice available.

Will you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?

Of course, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to locations throughout Clwyd, including Llangollen, Llandudno, Denbigh and Llanrwst. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential customers too. However, you need plenty of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, RORO skips can only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

What will happen to my waste once the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into various waste types, including timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic items like old televisions, fridges, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Llangollen. We employ a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to make sure they match the high principles we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

If I require a skip on a road in Llangollen, will I need to have a permit?

Normally, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must have consent from the local authority in Llangollen, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as 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 ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access the place you need it positioned, we can manage everything.

If you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the property. Alternatively, you might need to be sure that the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
