Rhymney Skip Hire FAQs

How big is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous tasks.

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

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

Can I fill the skip higher than the level load line?

It is important never to overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Rhymney and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner firms are verified and tested to make certain they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Rhymney?

Normally, it will be possible to have the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you have got to have consent from your local authority in Rhymney, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial scale skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that generate large quantities of waste materials.

What things can I put in my skip?

Before hiring a skip, it is important to ensure that the type of rubbish you want to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic goods, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from your general waste.

Can you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas across Gwent, such as Rhymney, Tredegar, Pontllanfraith and Monmouth. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What happens to the waste when the skip is collected?

When you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Rhymney where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How do you order a skip in Rhymney?

Hiring a skip in Rhymney through us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you want and input a few details about when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are fantastic for numerous types of household and industrial projects. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste like dirt, stone and gravel.

We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to order.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, these are the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can normally hire your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

In general, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.

However, if this is not feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and then we will handle the rest.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?

Electrical items including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products need to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

Other areas covered include Tredegar, Pontllanfraith, Monmouth, Abertillery, Chepstow, Caldicot, Ebbw Vale and Nantyglo.
