Rhondda Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

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

The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are ideal for a multitude of domestic and business projects. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for hefty builders waste like soil, rubble and concrete.

What is the cost of skip hire in Rhondda?

Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Rhondda. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip positioned on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

What things can I put in my skip?

You can fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy building waste like stone or soil, the largest size you can get is an 8 yard skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Will a skip hire company from Rhondda deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Rhondda and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients too. However, you should have a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Electrical products such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items have to be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

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

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the various waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to load the skip above level load line?

It is essential to never overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you may be required to take off the surplus waste. No matter how secure you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is not allowed.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Rhondda firms which generate a big quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

If I need a skip on the road in Rhondda, will I need to get a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.

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

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Rhondda?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted journey.

Can you deliver to other areas in Mid Glamorgan?

Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to both domestic and industrial customers throughout Mid Glamorgan and anywhere else within the UK.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

The majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

How can I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you need the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Rhondda on the day you have selected.

Other areas covered include Talbot Green, Pontypridd, Treherbert, Abercynon, Merthyr Tydfil, Porth, Porthcawl and Aberdare.
