Wrexham Skip Hire FAQs
What size skips have got a drop door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, although they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical products including old TVs, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We can supply a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Wrexham companies which generate a large volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, cardboard, concrete and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
Am I allowed to throw all types of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, some things that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risks they can cause.
You can not throw out your refrigerator, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous components in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to contact us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
If I need a skip on a road in Wrexham, will I need to get a permit?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure permission from your local authority in Wrexham, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before placing your order that getting the permit will often take up to two working days.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip used across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size which you can use for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How large is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip may be the best choice. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic work like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Will a Wrexham skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use an extensive network of approved companies. These can include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Will you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Wrexham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Clwyd. By utilising a network of local and national skip hire companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Wrexham, Ruthin or Denbigh, we have got you covered.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wrexham?
The cost of hiring a skip in Wrexham will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip placed on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to take out excess waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip is unsafe, as waste could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have further rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.
Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Wrexham?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by household customers too. Having said that, you should have a good amount of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roro skips can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and rubble.
