Treorchy Skip Hire FAQs
How can I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Treorchy with us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you want and enter a couple of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Can I have a skip with a drop door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, though these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What are the different skip sizes available?

What happens to the waste?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Treorchy?
Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Treorchy. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip located on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.
What is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction and demolition work. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like soil, rubble and rock.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
If I would like a skip on a road in Treorchy, will I need to get a permit?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you need to obtain permission from the local council in Treorchy, which is called a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of significant amounts of waste. Generally, these type of containers are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, residential clients may also hire them. It is essential to consider the area they take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for light waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can generally keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection day when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that may result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.
Among the most frequent items that we see in skips include garden soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cupboards, sinks, as well as other household products.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electrical items (tumble dryers, televisions and computers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and so disposing of them has to adhere to a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Treorchy?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Treorchy and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic items such as old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can access the place you need it positioned, we will manage everything.
If you are not going to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located at a particular side of the property. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the details when ordering, and we will ensure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.
Is it okay to load up the skip higher than the top?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as waste could fall and result in injury or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please ensure that you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
