Risca Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to put all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

A skip can be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of items from building work, garden projects and property clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Concrete and bricks
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials will be accepted, therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you discard in the skip will vary based on the size skip you chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to dispose of soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items which I can’t put in the skip?

There are some waste materials which you will not be allowed to dump in the skip. The reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements that may harm the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Some of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can generally hire a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection time when you place your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It may take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Risca?

As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

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

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

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic items like washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure 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 confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted trip.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

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

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for building and construction projects. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste, such as earth, rubble and bricks.

Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Will you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to domestic and business customers throughout Gwent and elsewhere within the UK.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, 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 waste disposal solution to take on many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than level load line?

Unfortunately not. You can only load the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Risca?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Risca, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

What size skips do you offer?

We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Risca businesses which generate a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What happens to the rubbish?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

If I require a skip on a road in Risca, will I need to get a permit?

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

If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that is not possible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and we will handle the rest.

Other areas covered include Blaina, Monmouth, Ystrad Mynach, Pontypool, Cwmbrân, Bargod, Caerleon and Abertillery.
