Llanidloes Skip Hire FAQs

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Llanidloes?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can result in a charge for a wasted journey.

What is a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are suited to a wide variety of household and industrial tasks. These are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste like soil, rubble and gravel.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

Will you deliver skips across Powys?

Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Powys, including Llanidloes, Ystradgynlais, Montgomery and Talgarth. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably be asked to empty any items higher than the level load line. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to hire the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you need. We would be pleased to help.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips used mainly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste materials.

Am I able to throw electronic items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered goods including cookers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

What kinds of rubbish am I able to throw in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, you must check that the type of rubbish you want to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you can discard in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, such as old bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

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

You don’t need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being in whenever the skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, if you can’t be available for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?

Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, like soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like household furniture.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Llanidloes?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Llanidloes where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just the thing 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 choice to deal with many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

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