Pencoed Skip Hire FAQs

We can usually deliver skips to Pencoed the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suitable for a multitude of residential and business tasks. They are the biggest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, rubble and bricks.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Pencoed?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are available in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.
In case you are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located at a particular side of the property. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic products like tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items should be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
What is the cost of skip hire in Pencoed?
The cost of hiring a skip in Pencoed will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What size is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to throw out, a mini skip could be the best choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, according to what sizes they provide.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential tasks including modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What waste can I put in a skip?

Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can put in your skip include household items like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be discarded separately from general waste.

Am I allowed to load up the skip above level load line?
It is important never to overload your skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container can be hazardous, as waste could fall and result in injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into a range of waste types, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Can I have a skip with a drop down door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
