Machynlleth Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Machynlleth?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, you will save some money.

Will the skip have a drop door?

The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then 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 heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What happens to the waste?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, including metal, cardboard, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Machynlleth?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Am I allowed to throw electrical items in my skip?

Electronic products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods should be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you should have a lot of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro skips can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building projects, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

What sort of waste am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building waste such as stone or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Machynlleth?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Then, choose the date you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Machynlleth on the day you have chosen.

We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each size costs to order.

Will you deliver to other areas in Powys?

Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations across Powys, including Machynlleth, Montgomery, Brecon and Ystradgynlais. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

No, you can only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to take away the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size skips can you deliver?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Machynlleth, you will have multiple options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them ideal for household clear ups including large items like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for light materials, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

For more information about the different capacities available, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred pick up date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished, and then we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic times.
