What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by household customers as well. However, you will want a lot of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, these containers can only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for construction work. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, concrete and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop door will make filling rubbish into it much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as soil or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up big bulky objects like furniture much easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact size delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

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

It is essential to never overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you could be asked to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

What can I put in the skip?

Before you hire a skip, it is important to ensure that the sort of waste materials you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you could discard in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, including wood, soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of restricted items include things like electrical goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

If I want a skip on a road in Porth, will I need a permit?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own land, you will save some money.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being in when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to company property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Porth, you will have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are well suited for household clear ups including bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.

For more details about the different sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Other areas covered include Porthcawl, Treherbert, Pencoed, Tonypandy, Ferndale, Pontyclun, Abercynon and Pontycymer.
