Pontardawe Skip Hire FAQs

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Pontardawe?

Select the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you need the skip to be delivered.

How much will skip hire in Pontardawe cost?

The cost of hiring a skip in Pontardawe will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have the skip on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Am I allowed to load my skip above level load line?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will then have to empty any items over the level load mark. This also means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you select the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re not sure which size is best. We would be glad to help.

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

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you have got to obtain permission from your local council in Pontardawe, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your road permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

Do you deliver skips across West Glamorgan?

Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to provide skips to domestic and commercial customers across West Glamorgan and anywhere else within the UK.

What will happen to the rubbish?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small household projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal job to deal with, the builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, they are the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I able to put all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

It is possible to put a variety of waste into the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in your skip.

However, there are some materials that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risk they can cause.

You can’t throw in your refrigerator, laptop or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous elements in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip which is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the largest size which you can use for heavy waste matter like soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Pontardawe and the rest of the UK. Our partner companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electronic products such as old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Having a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste such as soil and concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can typically give you a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (like a street), you will need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be used by residential customers too. Having said that, you will require a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, roro skips can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can gain access to where you want it located, we will take care of everything.

In the event you are not going to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of your driveway. Or you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions are passed on to the delivery driver.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip firms and is great for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Other areas covered include Gorseinon, Glyn-neath, Loughor, Swansea, Pontarddulais, Neath and Port Talbot.
