Ruthin Skip Hire FAQs

How fast can you deliver a skip to Ruthin?

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

If you confirm your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a charge for the wasted trip.

What sizes do skips come in?

We provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Ruthin firms which generate a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle numerous tasks.

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

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

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the largest size that can be used for heavy waste such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Ruthin?

Generally, it is possible to have the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you need to get approval from your local council in Ruthin, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electronic objects including TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods have to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How do you order a skip online?

We have designed our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your delivery postcode to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Ruthin. Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you need the skip delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to verify your order once your booking is complete!

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we are able to take care of everything.

In case you are not likely to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport large quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are used for business applications. However, household customers may also hire them. You have to consider the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and concrete.

What happens to the rubbish?

The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, including soil, cardboard, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

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

You must not load your skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be picked up.

What is the cost of skip hire in Ruthin?

The price of hiring a skip in Ruthin will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Will you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?

As well as delivering skips to Ruthin, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Clwyd. By utilising a network of regional and national skip businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Ruthin, Flint or Shotton, we have got it covered.

Am I able to throw all types of rubbish in a skip?

You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in your skip.

However, there are some items that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.

You cannot throw out your refrigerator, computer monitor or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal waste.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please get in touch for more details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
