The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and house clearances.

What types of waste can you put in a skip?
You are able to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, soil, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip will depend on the size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you are using a skip for heavy building waste such as rubble or top soil, the largest size you could get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Can I get a skip that has a drop door?
Nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several trips to your local recycling centre.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as failed deliveries can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t achievable, you do not have to be concerned. Just tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will handle everything.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Maesteg?
Generally, it will be possible to get a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you need to have permission from your local council in Maesteg, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial size skips used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
Can I load up my skip above the top?
Unfortunately not. You can only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the cost of skip hire in Maesteg?
This will depend on the size you require and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in commercial settings. To get an immediate price for skip hire in Maesteg, simply enter the delivery postcode into the search box above.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suitable for numerous types of domestic and business tasks. These are the largest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including soil, stone and concrete.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can usually hire the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Am I able to throw electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic products including old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
Other areas covered include Tonypandy, Pontycymer, Treorchy, Llantrisant, Porth, Talbot Green, Ferndale and Aberdare.
