Menai Bridge Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these skips are used for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic clients can also hire them. It is very important look at the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be used for light-weight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and hardcore.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suited to an array of residential and commercial projects. These are the biggest skips that can be used for weighty builders waste like garden soil, rubble and gravel.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste prior to it being picked up.

This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip is dangerous, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.

We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Menai Bridge and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Menai Bridge?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a domestic task, then a drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Menai Bridge. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it positioned, we will take care of everything.
In case you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the property. Or you may need to make sure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?
Electric powered items including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products should be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The waste in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, such as metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted journey.

Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in a skip?
You are allowed to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as concrete or dirt, the largest size you can use is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
Other areas covered include Caernarfon, Beaumaris, Pwllheli, Porthmadog, Tywyn, Nefyn, Criccieth and Holyhead.
