St Asaph Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in St Asaph with us is very simple. Pick the skip size you will need and enter a handful of details about where and when you need your skip delivered. Then you can 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 to you.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
It is vital never to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you may be required to remove the excess waste. However safe you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is unsafe and is prohibited.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size offered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 cubic 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 a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What happens to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household clients too. However, you should have a good amount of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, RORO skips can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Will you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to both residential and industrial customers throughout Clwyd and elsewhere in the UK.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
When it comes to ordering a skip in St Asaph, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups involving bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For additional information about the various capacities available, including measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
If I need a skip on a road in St Asaph, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you will have to receive permission from your local authority in St Asaph, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the permit can often take up to two working days.
What is the cost of skip hire in St Asaph?
This will depend on the size you need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical objects need to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most popular skip hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste matter including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
What can I put in the skip?
You can throw a variety of waste into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is permitted as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, some items that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risks they may cause.
You cannot get rid of your refrigerator, computer monitor or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this waste. Please get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Do you use local skip hire companies in St Asaph?
Since we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this provides you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
