Llantrisant Skip Hire FAQs

What waste materials can I put in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to discard many different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous materials produced from building jobs, garden projects and property clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you throw in the skip will vary according to which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to get rid of top soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard skip.

Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are some items that you will not be able to get rid of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these items incorporate hazardous elements that may be harmful to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

A few of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

Our standard hire term will be a fortnight from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, contact us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest size that can be used for hefty waste including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Can I put electronic products in my skip?

Electrical objects like TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects have to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little 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 a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Will a skip hire company from Llantrisant deliver my skip?

As we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are primarily for business use but can be used by household customers also. Having said that, you need a good amount of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and rubble.

How can I hire a skip?

Ordering a skip in Llantrisant with us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you require and then enter a handful of details about when and where you need your skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered to you.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to match 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 roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, including clay and stone. But they can equally well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Will you deliver skips across Mid Glamorgan?

As well as delivering skips to Llantrisant, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Mid Glamorgan. Through our network of local and national waste management businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Llantrisant, Bridgend or Tonypandy, we have got you covered.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Llantrisant?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic job, then the 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 option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you must get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Llantrisant. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How much does skip hire in Llantrisant cost?

This will depend on the size you require and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as furniture.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being home when your skip arrives means you can make sure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip can be placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, in the event you can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.

Am I allowed to load the skip above level load line?

You must not fill up the skip past the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into several different waste streams, including timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How fast can you deliver a skip to Llantrisant?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.
