What is the cost of skip hire in Pontycymer?

Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Pontycymer. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for the wasted trip.

If I want a skip on a road in Pontycymer, will I need to get a permit?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you will have to secure permission from the local authority in Pontycymer, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.

What happens to the rubbish?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste types, including stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip which is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction projects, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option which you can use for heavy waste matter including dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

Is it okay to load the skip above level load line?

I’m afraid not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to take off the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, you must check that the kind of waste materials you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, including wood, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general waste.

Is it possible to get a skip with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips used predominantly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that generate large quantities of waste.

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical products including washing machines, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can in most cases keep a skip for up to two weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and then we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy periods.

Can you deliver to other areas in Mid Glamorgan?

Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can deliver skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Mid Glamorgan and anywhere else in the UK.
