Pontyclun Skip Hire FAQs
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually 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 bags of waste, which is good for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We also offer 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
What is a builders skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to dispose of substantial building waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.
A builders skip is great for a wide array of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective solution available.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can typically supply skips to Pontyclun the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform gives you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Pontyclun where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Will a skip hire company from Pontyclun deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What types of waste can I put in the skip?
It is possible to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste like bricks or dirt, the largest size you can use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Pontyclun?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to get authorisation from your local council in Pontyclun, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your home. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load line?
It is vital to not overload the skip. You must not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be asked to take away the excess waste. No matter how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
How much does skip hire in Pontyclun cost?
Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Pontyclun. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip placed on the highway or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric items such as tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
Do you deliver skips across Mid Glamorgan?
Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to both residential and industrial customers across Mid Glamorgan and anywhere else in the UK.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?
Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How do you order a skip in Pontyclun?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Pontyclun on the day you have selected.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers also. However, you should have lots of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.
