St Davids Skip Hire FAQs

We offer a UK wide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in St Davids, Llandeilo, New Quay, Llanybydder or another area in Dyfed, we are able to help.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip might be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these represent the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. But they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

If you manage a company in St Davids and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

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

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be home when your skip is delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, when you can’t be around for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can in most cases keep your skip for as many as two weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a chosen pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished, and we will plan your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic times.

Do you use local skip hire companies in St Davids?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any materials above the level load line. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to St Davids where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What can I put in my skip?

A skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing lots of items produced from building work, garden landscaping and property clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products can include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden trimmings
  • Soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most materials will be allowed, therefore whether you want to get rid of furniture, plastics, wood or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you put in the skip will vary depending on which size skip you have ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like dispose of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size you will be allowed to hire is the 8 yard skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are a few items that you will not be allowed to put in the skip. The main reason for this is that these items contain hazardous components which could be damaging to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.

Some of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How much will it cost to hire a skip in St Davids?

The price of hiring a skip in St Davids will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

Typically, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition work. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, like dirt, concrete and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electrical items including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items should be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

If I require a skip on the road in St Davids, will I need a permit?

Generally, it will be possible to get the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must have consent from your local authority in St Davids, which is called a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

Other areas covered include Llandeilo, New Quay, Llanybydder, Llandysul, Aberystwyth, Llandovery, Narberth and Fishguard.
