Welshpool Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste in the skip?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Welshpool where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can normally have a skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to give a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy periods.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is great for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the loft, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.
Is it ok to load the skip above the level load line?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you risk being required to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as objects could fall and cause personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please ensure that you order a skip size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What waste can I put in a skip?
You can load your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or dirt, the largest size you could get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What size skips have got a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
What skip sizes can you deliver?
We are able to offer a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for larger sized jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Welshpool companies which have a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t possible, you don’t need to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will handle everything.
Do you deliver to other areas in Powys?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Welshpool, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Powys. Through a network of local and national waste management companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Welshpool, Brecon or Ystradgynlais, we have got it covered.
Will a Welshpool skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a national waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
How long will it take to get a skip in Welshpool?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your 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 majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Welshpool?
This depends upon the size you need and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings. To get an immediate price for skip hire in Welshpool, simply enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
If you have a business in Welshpool and want to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
How do you order a skip online?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your postcode to view the range of skips we are able to deliver to Welshpool. Pick which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be dropped on private property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Welshpool?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a household job, then a driveway is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you must get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Welshpool. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical products such as old TVs, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.
