Treharris Skip Hire FAQs

Where will my rubbish go when the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a variety of waste types, which includes stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of substantial building waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the shed, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective choice available.

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, because electrical products including old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

What sizes do skips come in?

Our company offers a whole selection of skip sizes to household and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags

Will you deliver skips across Mid Glamorgan?

Yes, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations across Mid Glamorgan, including Treharris, Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda and Bridgend. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on many tasks.

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 be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are used for business purposes. However, residential customers can also use them. It is very important take into account the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for light materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and rubble.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

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

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How much does skip hire in Treharris cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Treharris depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Treharris?

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

If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than level load line?

Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up above this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?

Typically, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered to you.

What waste can I put in my skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can result from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we find in skips include dirt, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and other household objects.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electronic products (fridges, televisions or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you want it delivered, we can manage everything.

In the event you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection time when making your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Other areas covered include Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda, Bridgend, Porthcawl, Pontycymer, Abercynon, Mountain Ash and Maesteg.
