Merthyr Tydfil Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce large amounts of waste.
Will a Merthyr Tydfil skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Merthyr Tydfil. We work with a network of both local and national providers to allow us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to make certain they match the high principles we require with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
You can use a skip to throw out lots of different waste types. We are used to collecting and handling a multitude of materials generated from construction work, garden projects and household tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Home furnishings
- Garden cuttings
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
Many different materials will be permitted, therefore whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and items you throw in the skip can vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and bricks, for example, the largest size you would be permitted to hire would be the 8 yard skip.
Are there any items which I can’t throw in the skip?
There are a few items you are not able to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these products contain hazardous materials which could be harmful to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately within UK laws.
A few examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Chemical substances
Am I allowed to put electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electronic items such as old TVs, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Merthyr Tydfil?
Usually, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you need to get consent from your local council in Merthyr Tydfil, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to remove the excess waste before it can be collected.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is delivered, but it will help. Being home when your skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition waste materials, like dirt, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste materials, such as metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What is the cost of skip hire in Merthyr Tydfil?
This depends upon the size you require and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Merthyr Tydfil, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for household clear ups including large items like furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For more information about the various sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How long does it take to get a skip in Merthyr Tydfil?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will typically provide a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (like a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
