Pontypool Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you run a company in Pontypool and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted using chains.

What can I put in the skip?

You can use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling lots of materials from building work, garden landscaping and property clearances. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are generally allowed, and so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and items you throw into the skip may vary based on which size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to dispose of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size container you will be permitted to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there any items that I can’t put in the skip?

There are some waste materials that you will not be permitted to discard in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous materials that may be damaging to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Some examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, as electrical products like old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

How much does skip hire in Pontypool cost?

The price of getting a skip in Pontypool is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip placed on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Pontypool?

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

If you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

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

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to access the place you need it located, we can take care of everything.

If you are not likely to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you may need the skip to be located on a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Pontypool?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a household job, then the drive will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Pontypool. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The standard hire period will be 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can select a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible at busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Will a Pontypool skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the level load mark?

It is important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded container will be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and cause injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this problem, please ensure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

How do I order a skip?

Ordering a skip in Pontypool with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you will need and then input a few details about when and where you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

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

What size is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of weighty building materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or soil.

A builders skip is great for a number of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
