Skip Hire Mistakes

Common Mistakes When Hiring A Skip

Will the skip fit on my drive? What can I actually put in my skip? Do I need a permit? What size skip will I need? Just a few of the most frequently asked questions by our many customers! We understand that booking a skip for the first time can be a little daunting, which is why we have put together some top tips to help you avoid making those common mistakes!

What Cant I Put Into A Skip

As a rule, you can put most general mixed household/garden waste in your skip, including soil/stone and other materials. However, here are a few tips to remember:

If you are putting soil and stone into a skip then the maximum size skip you can order is an 8 yard (which will hold 8 tonnes of waste).

There are also items that we do accept, but which will incur an extra charge, such as fridges and freezers! It’s best to have a quick read through our skip hire FAQ’s for more information.

What Is Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste is categorised as waste that poses a threat to both public health and the wellbeing of the environment. Just because waste is considered hazardous it doesn’t mean that it will cause immediate risk to an individual’s health. Although, with certain types of waste this could be the case. For this reason, the transfer and removal of hazardous waste is a process that is taken very seriously by waste removal experts. If you are looking for hazardous waste removal in South Wales, contact the experts here at Cardiff & Caerphilly Skips.

How To Choose A Skip

Our customers often find it difficult to translate the volume of waste they have into a specific size skip. Here’s some advice from our booking team.

Always order the largest size skip you can afford, trust us it will get filled! Generally, a 6 yd standard builders skip is a good place to start. These are the ones that you will often see by the side of the road and are good for general household/garden clearances and renovations/extensions etc.

No problem, you can request a permit from the council for your skip to be placed on the road, or we can do it for you. We usually allow 5-7 working days for this to be approved and will do all the paperwork for you. These permits last for 28 days starting from when the skip was dropped.
