Talgarth Skip Hire FAQs

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

You don’t have to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

What types of waste can I put in the skip?

It is possible to fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste such as bricks or soil, the biggest size you could use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What is a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, such as earth, concrete and stone.

Although they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Talgarth?

We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your postcode to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Talgarth. Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to confirm your order once your booking is done!

If I want a skip on the road in Talgarth, will I need to have a permit?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.

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

Am I allowed to fill my skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to remove any rubbish higher than the level load line. This also means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure to select the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be glad to help.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The normal hire period is 2 weeks from the delivery date. However, at the time you order your skip, you can select a pick up date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can typically supply skips to Talgarth the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Will you deliver to other areas in Powys?

Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can provide skips to both residential and business customers across Powys and anywhere else within the UK.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful when choosing a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size skips do you provide?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip may be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as soil and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste. Generally, these containers are used for commercial applications. However, household customers may also order them. You should take into account the space they take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for light-weight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and concrete.

How much will skip hire in Talgarth cost?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Talgarth, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your location and how much each size will cost you to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a range of waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Talgarth and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make sure they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric goods like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

Other areas covered include Machynlleth, Welshpool, Llanidloes, Llanfair Caereinion, Ystradgynlais, Llanfyllin, Newtown and Rhayader.
