Skip Hire

Following a review of the Council’s recycling policy, we are pleased to announce that we are now only offering single waste stream skips. This will help us to reduce our impact on the environment whilst supporting Cardiff move towards zero waste by 2050.

The materials we currently collect are wood, soil, rubble, garden waste, scrap metal or plasterboard. We can potentially arrange removal of other items, so please get in touch to discuss.

We can offer reasonably priced skip hire to local residents and businesses in Cardiff. We have a range of skip sizes available, from the smaller builder’s skips to larger roll-on roll-off skips, to suit a range of needs.

These skips can be hired as a one-off service or can form part of a contract with regular collections.

Skip Permits

If you are proposing to store your skip on the highway, you will need a permit but we can help facilitate this as part of the service. We can also provide cones and lights to comply with the permit terms and conditions.

More information about skip permits

In order to comply with Health and Safety regulations, skips must not be filled over the specified fill level.

There are also some items which should not be placed in the skip:

  • Asbestos
  • Clinical and medical waste
  • Batteries or acids
  • Hazardous or toxic materials
  • Japanese Knotweed
  • Paint cans, solvents, mastic tubes
  • Florescent tubes
  • Aerosols or gas bottles
  • Liquids including oils

Asbestos Advice

When asbestos materials age or become damaged (i.e. when drilled, sawn, scrubbed or sanded) they can release toxic fibers into the air.
