Tonypandy Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into various waste streams, including wood, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
If I want a skip on the road in Tonypandy, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

How do I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the road). Next, choose the date you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Tonypandy on the day you have chosen.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Tonypandy?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Tonypandy and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make certain they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How big is a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip that is hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option which you can use for hefty materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I able to throw away electronic products in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?
It is important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded bin can be unsafe, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please be sure to hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have further waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Will you deliver to other areas in Mid Glamorgan?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to household and industrial customers throughout Mid Glamorgan and elsewhere in the UK.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a company in Tonypandy and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Tonypandy, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are ideal for house clearances involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or concrete.
For further information about the various skip sizes offered, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish which will result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most common items that we pick up in skips include soil, timber, tree trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, as well as other household items.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electrical items (dishwashers, monitors and printers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them has to follow a completely different process to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
