What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a business in Llanrwst and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers available.
As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we can manage it all.
In the event you will not be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the drive. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Llanrwst?
Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a residential project, then your drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or other public property in Llanrwst. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is designed for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Will you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?
Along with delivering skips to Llanrwst, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Clwyd. By utilising a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Llanrwst, Colwyn Bay or Penmaenmawr, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electrical items like old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Llanrwst?
Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Can I throw all sorts of waste in a skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is important to ensure that the sort of waste materials you need to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, like bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Llanrwst?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the road). Next, choose the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Llanrwst on the day you have chosen.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the top?
It is essential to not overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overload your skip, you may be required to take off the surplus waste. However secure you believe the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly used for building jobs. There are generally two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and bricks.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What is the cost of skip hire in Llanrwst?
The cost of getting a skip in Llanrwst is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip placed on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do all skips have a drop door?
The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Llanrwst where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
