Penarth Skip Hire FAQs

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are great for numerous domestic and business jobs. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.

These firms are comprehensively vetted to make sure they fulfill the high standards we require when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop down door will make loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil or concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky items like household furniture much easier as well.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually give you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a highway), you need to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

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

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

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

Ideally, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic project, then the drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or other public property in Penarth. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Am I able to dispose of all types of waste in my skip?

It is possible to fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy building waste including stone or dirt, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

We will immediately show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost you to order.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These containers are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you will require a lot of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

It could take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.

Am I allowed to throw electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods like cookers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

Am I allowed to fill my skip above level load mark?

You must not fill your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you might be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Penarth where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Other areas covered include Cowbridge, Barry, Llantwit Major and Cardiff.
