Montgomery Skip Hire FAQs

If I want a skip on the road in Montgomery, will I need to have a permit?

Normally, it is possible to have your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you need to get permission from the local authority in Montgomery, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, as electrical items like old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.

Do you deliver skips across Powys?

Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can offer skips to both household and industrial customers across Powys and elsewhere in the UK.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Montgomery?

Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Montgomery. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the road or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to dispose of weighty construction waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

A builder’s skip is great for a variety of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the loft, these big skips are often the most cost-effective solution available.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access the place you want it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.

In case you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your property. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport significant volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, domestic customers can also order them. It is essential to take into account the area they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.

Will the skip have a drop door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the side?

It is important to not overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overload your skip, you might be required to take off the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore prohibited.

How do you order a skip in Montgomery?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the street). Then, select the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Montgomery on the date you have selected.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Our standard hire term is 2 weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can select a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Will a skip hire company from Montgomery deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste materials you need to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could throw in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, including bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from general rubbish.
