Whitland Skip Hire FAQs
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Whitland, you have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are ideal for household clear ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For additional details about the various sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Whitland, Aberystwyth, Tregaron, Narberth or another location in Dyfed, we are able to help.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two different skip sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition materials, including soil, concrete and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
How much will skip hire in Whitland cost?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Whitland, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each size will cost to order. If your skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you will need a lot of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro skips can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door will make filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like garden soil or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky items such as pieces of furniture much easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Do I have to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being home when your skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to your company property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available during delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Whitland?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you will need to get authorisation from the local authority in Whitland, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Whitland where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How do I order a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter your postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Whitland. Choose which size you wish to hire, and confirm if it will be located on private property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is essential never to overload your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you may be required to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is prohibited.
Will a skip hire company from Whitland deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Whitland. We employ a network of both local and national businesses to enable us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that may result from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various household items.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electrical products (refrigerators, televisions and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them has to comply with an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The normal hire term will be two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric goods including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
