Loughor Skip Hire FAQs

These can vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are suited to numerous types of domestic and commercial tasks. They are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste including garden soil, stone and concrete.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers too. Having said that, you will require a lot of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro skips can only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

Can I load the skip higher than the level load line?

I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential tasks.

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

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, such as soil and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What can I put in the skip?

This is amongst the most common questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that could result from garden work, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we collect in our skips include garden soil, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, toilets, and various other household items.

There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electronic items (dishwashers, monitors or cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Loughor?

Hiring a skip in Loughor through us is very simple. Choose the skip size you require and then input a handful of details about when and where you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered.

Will you deliver skips across West Glamorgan?

Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to both household and commercial customers across West Glamorgan and elsewhere within the UK.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Loughor?

In most cases, it is possible to have your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you have got to have consent from your local council in Loughor, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that will give you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to access where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.

For those who will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular area of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions are passed on to the delivery driver.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Loughor?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What is the cost of skip hire in Loughor?

The price of hiring a skip in Loughor is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

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

Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as furniture.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste streams, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I able to throw away electronic products in the skip?

No, you cannot throw old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things like computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in your skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.

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

Other areas covered include Glyn-neath, Pontardawe, Gorseinon, Pontarddulais, Neath, Swansea and Port Talbot.
