Usk Skip Hire FAQs

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips are available in a selection of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and stone. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is a builders skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to discard weighty building waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.

The builders skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out your garage, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Usk?

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

If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical objects including televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items should be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

What things can I put in my skip?

You may use a skip to get rid of lots of different waste types. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of items produced from construction work, garden projects and property tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste materials are permitted, and therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you put into the skip will vary according to which size skip you have hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there items that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few waste items which you will not be permitted to dispose of in the skip. The reason behind this is that these products contain hazardous elements which could be damaging to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK laws.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.

On the other hand, when this is not possible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for household tasks including small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce large volumes of waste.

Do you deliver to other areas in Gwent?

In addition to delivering our range of skips to Usk, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Gwent. With the help of our network of local and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Our normal hire period is 2 weeks from the delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can choose a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop door can make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up large bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier also.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

How do you order a skip?

Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?

You should not load a skip past the level load line. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being picked up.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Usk?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.

What will happen to the rubbish?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a number of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What is the cost of skip hire in Usk?

This is determined by the skip size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option.
