Below are some of the typical questions we get about our skip hire services.

Pontllanfraith Skip Hire FAQs

Can I fill my skip above the level load mark?

It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and cause injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your home. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.

The same thing goes if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

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

Will you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can provide skips to domestic and commercial customers across Gwent and elsewhere within the UK.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Pontllanfraith, you have multiple sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups including large items such as furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.

For additional information regarding the different capacities offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How long will it take to get a skip in Pontllanfraith?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can normally give a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, since to be on public property (such as a street), you need to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the loft space, these large containers will often be the most affordable choice available.

How much will skip hire in Pontllanfraith cost?

The price of hiring a skip in Pontllanfraith is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Can I dispose of electronic products in the skip?

I’m afraid not, because electrical items like old televisions, freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Pontllanfraith?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like garden soil or stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier as well.

Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

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

The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, paper, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

How do you hire a skip online?

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

If you have a company in Pontllanfraith and want to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.

What waste materials can I put in a skip?

Before hiring a skip, it is important to make sure that the type of waste materials you need to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you may discard in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as wood, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from any general waste.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Pontllanfraith?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.

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

Other areas covered include Abercarn, Newbridge, Blaina, Ystrad Mynach, Tredegar, Cwmbrân, Usk and Risca.
