Neath Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire a skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Do I have to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What things can I put in the skip?
It is possible to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes like bricks or garden soil, the maximum size you could hire is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. It is essential to look at the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
Will a Neath skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Neath and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make certain they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.
Which size skips will have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic objects including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric objects must be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Where does the rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, such as metal, cardboard, rubble and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Neath companies with a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Neath?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will be asked to remove any materials above the level load mark. This also means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you select the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be hired to dispose of substantial building materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.
The builders skip is ideal for a variety of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the loft, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.
