Port Talbot Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is the cost of skip hire in Port Talbot?
Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Port Talbot. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip located on the highway or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Can I dispose of all types of rubbish in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building waste including concrete or soil, the maximum size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to remove any materials over the level load line. This also means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.
What skip sizes have a drop door?
Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like furniture.
How can I hire a skip in Port Talbot?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your address to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Port Talbot. Choose which size you wish to hire, and confirm if it will be delivered on private property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Port Talbot, you have numerous sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are well suited for house clearances including bulky items like household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further information regarding the various sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into several different waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How long can I keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Glamorgan?
Certainly, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas throughout West Glamorgan, including Port Talbot, Pontarddulais, Glyn-neath and Loughor. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Port Talbot and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Port Talbot?
Generally, it is possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you have got to have approval from your local authority in Port Talbot, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How long will it take to get a skip in Port Talbot?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building work, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for hefty waste like garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
