We also have skips with doors and these types of skips are primarily for people putting in waste such as soil and hardcore material, as they can walk into the skip with a wheel barrow.

The team at skip hire Cardiff always ask and advice you on the waste types before hiring out a skip, so for materials such as these we would charge differently per tonnage or per item. If in doubt speak to the team regarding any waste type you are unsure of as not all skip companies would accept certain waste types.

The roll on roll off skips range from 20 yard to 40 yard skips the reason for the various sizes in the bigger skips is that the bigger the skip means the lighter the waste type.

  3. Only specific waste types can be put in it and never of the mixed variety

What’s your type of waste that you want to dispose of?

The waste type determines how much the skip is, due to the fact some waste types need to be sent to landfill and others we can recycle ourselves at our depot.

This brings us to some items you cannot put in a skip tyres, solvent, oils, batteries, hazardous material, food etc

Some waste types however like plasterboards, fridges, asbestos can be put into skips but not mixed with other types of waste.

The size of the skip is the most important when hiring a skip, as you wouldn’t want to hire a skip too small for the job at hand or a size too big.

Will the skip fit on your driveway or will you need a council permit?

Most domestic skips can be placed on your driveway or the road, if you need it placed on the road, you would need a permit which we would obtain on your behalf from the council for a fee set by the council as fees vary per council. The permits however cover the skip being on the road for a maximum of 7 days which the customer would need to pay for to keep the skip on the road.
