How long can I hire the skip for?

Usually, you can have a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

However, when this is not possible, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Rhayader?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Rhayader and the rest of the UK. All of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to make certain they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can typically provide a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (for example a highway), you must get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

What happens to the waste when the skip is picked up?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What things can I put in my skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that may result from garden work, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most common items that we pick up in our skips include garden soil, timber, tree trimmings, cupboards, sinks, and various household items.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This includes any electrical goods (tumble dryers, TVs and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products including cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Rhayader?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a residential task, then a driveway will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Rhayader. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic clients as well. However, you need lots of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, RORO containers can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition work. There are usually two sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including earth, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.

Do all skips have a drop door?

For anybody who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, although these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

Other areas covered include Montgomery, Knighton, Llanidloes, Llanfair Caereinion, Llanwrtyd Wells, Ystradgynlais, Llanfyllin and Newtown.
