Pwllheli Skip Hire FAQs

How long can I hire the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Pwllheli, you will have multiple options to select 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 choice available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY tasks.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them ideal for household clearances including large items like pieces of furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

For additional information about the various skip sizes offered, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Pwllheli?

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

When you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be used by household customers as well. However, you will require lots of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, these containers should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.

However, if that isn’t feasible, you do not have to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.

Do you deliver skips across Gwynedd?

Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can provide skips to household and industrial customers throughout Gwynedd and elsewhere in the UK.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Pwllheli?

This is determined by the skip size you require and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

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

I’m afraid not, as electrical items including old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Can I put all types of rubbish in my skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of waste into your skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed too. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in the skip.

However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risks they may cause.

You can’t get rid of your freezer, computer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, however they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is delivered.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to take out surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as objects could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.

To avoid this issue, please ensure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition work. There are typically two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition waste, such as soil, rubble and bricks.

Although they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Pwllheli?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.

Other areas covered include Rhosgadfan, Barmouth, Bethesda, Holyhead, Bangor, Amlwch, Beaumaris and Tywyn.
