Milford Haven Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Milford Haven deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Milford Haven. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to make sure they meet the high principles we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
Is it ok to fill the skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any materials over the level load mark. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to hire the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you need. We will be glad to help.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?
Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Milford Haven?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to secure authorisation from the local authority in Milford Haven, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for your road permit, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include items like computers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and computer monitors. These objects can’t be thrown in your skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge quantities of waste. Generally, these skips are hired for business purposes. Having said that, household clients may also use them. It is important to think about the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for lightweight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and hardcore.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Our company offers a complete selection of skip sizes to household and business customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sized skips offered, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we will take care of everything.
If you will not be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, let us know when ordering, and we will make sure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, like soil, paper, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can you deliver to other areas in Dyfed?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Milford Haven, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Dyfed. Through a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Milford Haven, Haverfordwest or Newcastle Emlyn, we have got you covered.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste which can result from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most typical things that we see in skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, as well as other household products.
There are also some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electrical products (fridges and freezers, televisions or cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of weighty building and construction materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the loft space, these big skips are often the most cost-effective solution available.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will typically give you a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a road), you will need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
What is the cost of skip hire in Milford Haven?
The price of hiring a skip in Milford Haven is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have the skip on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
