Rhosgadfan Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is important to check that the sort of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, including old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from any general waste.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Rhosgadfan, you have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them great for household tidy ups involving large items like furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.

What is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are ideal for numerous household and commercial tasks. They are the largest skips which you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, rubble and concrete.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.

We can usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
How much does skip hire in Rhosgadfan cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Rhosgadfan depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as dirt and hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
If I want a skip on a road in Rhosgadfan, will I need a permit?
In most cases, it is possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have consent from your local authority in Rhosgadfan, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Will a Rhosgadfan skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
What happens to my waste once the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste streams, such as stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Is it ok to load my skip above the top?
It is important to never overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overload your skip, you could be required to take off the excess rubbish. However secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
