Newport Skip Hire FAQs

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.

Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you do not need to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and then we will handle everything.

Am I able to throw all kinds of rubbish in a skip?

You may use a skip to get rid of lots of different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of items generated from construction jobs, garden projects and household clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types include:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of materials will be allowed, and therefore whether you wish to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you throw into the skip may vary based on the size skip you hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to get rid of top soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size container you will be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several items that you will not be able to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that some products contain hazardous elements which can damage the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Some of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will a skip hire company from Newport deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

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. In some instances, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the order process.

Can you deliver skips across Gwent?

Along with delivering skips to Newport, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Gwent and the rest of Wales. Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Newport, Cwmbrân or Usk, we have got you covered.

What will happen to the waste?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Newport?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential customers as well. However, you should have plenty of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, these containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being collected.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to discard heavy construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.

A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your shed, these substantial containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.

How much will skip hire in Newport cost?

Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Newport. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced 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 street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The standard hire time frame will be 14 days from your delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can provide a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.

We can usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

What size skips have got a drop down door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How can I hire a skip in Newport?

Hiring a skip in Newport through us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you need and then input a couple of details about when and where you want your skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered on the date selected.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items including washing machines, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

Other areas covered include Cwmbrân, Usk, Abersychan, Risca, Blackwood, Monmouth, Ystrad Mynach and Abergavenny.
