Y Bala Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Y Bala skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

What happens to the rubbish?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to 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 soon as possible.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

Electric powered items including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to access where you want it positioned, we are able to manage everything.

For those who are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your driveway. Or you may need to make sure the skip does not block use of your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are hired for business uses. However, household clients can also use them. It is important to consider the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and hardcore.

Which size skips can have a drop door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is vital to not overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be required to remove the surplus waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are ideal for a wide variety of domestic and industrial projects. They are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste like garden soil, rubble and gravel.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Our company offers a full range of skip sizes to domestic and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the various sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags

Will you deliver skips across Gwynedd?

Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Gwynedd and anywhere else in the UK.

If I require a skip on the road in Y Bala, will I need to have a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Y Bala?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

What kinds of waste can you get rid of in a skip?

A skip may be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling lots of items generated from building work, garden projects and household clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials can include:

  • Furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many different waste types are permitted, and therefore whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and items you discard in your skip will vary according to the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like get rid of top soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some items which you will not be permitted to discard in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods include hazardous components which could damage the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK regulations.

Some examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
