Newtown Skip Hire FAQs

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste types, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

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

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

In case you are not going to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For example, you may need the skip to be located on a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to ensure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste.

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

No. You can only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to take away the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

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

Normally, it will be possible to have your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you must have permission from your local council in Newtown, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Newtown?

A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Newtown. We work with a network of both local and national companies to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to make sure they meet the high expectations we demand with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.

Do you deliver to other areas in Powys?

Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Powys, including Newtown, Presteigne, Llanfyllin and Rhayader. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I allowed to dispose of all types of rubbish in my skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy construction waste like stone or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

What is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are great for a multitude of domestic and industrial projects. They are the biggest skips which can be used for hefty builders waste including dirt, rubble and bricks.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

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

When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted trip.

How much will skip hire in Newtown cost?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Newtown, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get 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.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, as electrical items including old televisions, refrigerators, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?

Using a skip which has a drop door makes filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials such as dirt and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier as well.

Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

Other areas covered include Presteigne, Llanfyllin, Rhayader, Crickhowell, Machynlleth, Brecon, Welshpool and Llanfair Caereinion.
