Tenby Skip Hire FAQs

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Tenby?

The price of getting a skip in Tenby depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Electric powered objects including television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tenby?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your company premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip that is ordered in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option that can be used for heavy waste matter like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

How do I hire a skip online?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Tenby. Select the size you wish to order, and confirm if it will be delivered on your own property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.

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

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

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce significant amounts of waste materials.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for residential tasks like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What things can I put in the skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish which will result from garden work, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we find in skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and various other household objects.

However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electrical goods (fridges, monitors or washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load mark?

No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you could be asked to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

Will a Tenby skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Tenby and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.

However, if this isn’t possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when making your booking, and we will handle the rest.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Can you deliver skips across Dyfed?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Tenby, Cardigan, Kidwelly, Fishguard or another area in Dyfed, we can assist.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and stone. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
