Mountain Ash Skip Hire FAQs

What things can I put in my skip?

You can use a skip to dispose of many different waste types. We are used to picking up and handling lots of materials generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and house clearances. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials are generally permitted, so whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you discard in your skip may vary based on the size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard top soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size you will be allowed to use would be the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items which I can’t put in the skip?

There are several waste items which you are not allowed to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that some products include hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

How long does it take to get a skip in Mountain Ash?

We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.

If I require a skip on the road in Mountain Ash, will I need to have a permit?

If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic project, then your driveway is going to be ideal. When 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 street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Mountain Ash. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

Can you deliver skips across Mid Glamorgan?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both residential and business customers throughout Mid Glamorgan and anywhere else within the UK.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is important to never overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to take away the excess waste. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

The vast majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

The items in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, plastics, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a business in Mountain Ash and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Can I put electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not throw old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This can include such things as printers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. Electrical items can’t be thrown in your skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

How do you order a skip?

Hiring a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to see all the different skips we are able to deliver to Mountain Ash. Pick the size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be delivered on your own property. Enter in your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

Once your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Mountain Ash, you have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for small household clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups involving large objects such as household furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light waste, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

For more information regarding the different skip sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Mountain Ash?

Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Mountain Ash. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip placed on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are fantastic for a multitude of household and commercial projects. These are the largest size skips that you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, stone and bricks.

Other areas covered include Talbot Green, Pontypridd, Maesteg, Pontyclun, Abercynon, Pontycymer, Merthyr Tydfil and Aberdare.
