Llanwrtyd Wells Skip Hire FAQs

What size skips will have a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, when this is not possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.

Do you deliver skips across Powys?

Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas across Powys, including Llanwrtyd Wells, Crickhowell, Newtown and Hay-on-Wye. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Llanwrtyd Wells?

This will depend on the skip size you want and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (for example a street), you will need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Llanwrtyd Wells where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

No. You can only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

What sort of rubbish can you throw in a skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to check that the type of waste materials you intend to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including timber, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include electronic items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore must be discarded separately from general rubbish.

Will a Llanwrtyd Wells skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

How do you hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the street). After that, select the day you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Llanwrtyd Wells on the day you have chosen.

If I require a skip on a road in Llanwrtyd Wells, will I need to get a permit?

Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household task, then the drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Llanwrtyd Wells. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these skips are hired for business uses. However, residential clients can also hire them. It is important to look at the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for lightweight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection day when you make your order.

Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.

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

No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in a skip. This can include items like laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and televisions. Electronic products can’t be thrown in a skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are great for an array of domestic and industrial tasks. These are the biggest sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste including garden soil, stone and concrete.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the 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 labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

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