Nantyglo Skip Hire FAQs

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

The price of hiring a skip in Nantyglo depends on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you want to have a skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to get rid of weighty construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.

The builders skip is ideal for a number of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products should be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Nantyglo?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Nantyglo. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are assessed to guarantee they meet the high principles we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We can supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Nantyglo firms which produce a big quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Nantyglo?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Nantyglo?

Normally, it will be possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you need to have permission from the local council in Nantyglo, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the top?

It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excess waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as waste could fall and cause injury or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

Do you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

We provide a national skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Nantyglo, Abergavenny, Newport, Caerphilly or any other area in Gwent, we are able to assist.

Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t need to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being there when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry is given full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.

What things can I put in my skip?

Your skip may be used to discard a variety of types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling lots of items produced from construction jobs, garden projects and home clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are usually accepted, so whether you want to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and items you put into your skip may vary based on the size skip you hired. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to get rid of garden soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are several waste materials which you are not permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these goods contain hazardous components which can cause harm to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Then, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Nantyglo on the day you have chosen.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you operate a company in Nantyglo and want to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

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

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Where does the waste go when the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into various waste types, including wood, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.

Other areas covered include Abergavenny, Newport, Caerphilly, Risca, Monmouth, Abersychan, Blaina and Abertillery.
