Llantwit Major Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the rubbish?
The waste in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, including metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

How do I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your postcode to view the range of skips we are able to deliver to Llantwit Major. Pick the size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on private property. Type in your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you manage a company in Llantwit Major and wish to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are picked up by using chains.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?
The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as household furniture.
Can I load the skip higher than the side?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to remove excess waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as objects could drop and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please be sure you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Llantwit Major?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Llantwit Major, you will have numerous options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for household clearances including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
To get more information about the various capacities offered, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are perfect for an array of residential and industrial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and gravel.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that is not possible, you don’t have to stress. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to deal with many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Can you deliver to other areas in South Glamorgan?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Llantwit Major, Penarth, Barry, Cowbridge or any other area in South Glamorgan, we are able to help.
If I need a skip on a road in Llantwit Major, will I need to have a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
Am I able to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to load your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, if you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes like concrete or dirt, the maximum size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Can I throw away electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and televisions. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in your skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
