Cardiff

The capital and greatest city of Wales can be found in the classic region of Glamorgan, with a populace of basically 350,000. The city is still a key visitor place with over 18 million visitors in 2010. As the capital city, Cardiff's home price levels are likely to be greater than the other parts of Wales, which means that it's essential to maintain this value by working with vetted trades-people for any household improvement work.

FAQs

Can you put glass in a skip?

This is a question that’s very common amongst individuals looking for the best way to get rid of glass and reasonably so. Glass is a very dangerous and hazardous item which requires sensible precautionary measures to your waste disposal activities. If you are looking to dispose a whole glass, you should first consider giving it away to a friend or family who might be able to put it to good use. However if you are still concerned whether you can put glass in a skip, the answer is yes. And in fact, it’s probably the best glass disposal option that’s currently available, as it goes a long way to ensure user’s safety in the broken glassware pieces handling process.

Upon successful completion of your building’s construction or renovation, there’s a high chance a lot of broken glasses would be scattered everywhere and in need of immediate disposal efforts. The longer you ignore the glasses lying around, the higher the possibility of the glasses harming you or the construction workers. As a result, it is vital to make sure that the construction or project site is clean and free of any glass-posed hazards. Hiring a skip is your best bet to get rid of these harmful and unwanted wastes from your environment.

Wheelies are often considered to remove glasses especially from construction sites. However, due to the bulkiness and sharpness of glasses, it is crucial to incorporate heavy disposal equipment that are good enough to cut through the rubbish on the site. In addition, it’s not advisable to dump your broken glass in recycling bins, as it poses great threat to the waste disposal team collecting the recyclables. If you’d ever need to put your glass in a skip, ensure to insert them in boxes or wrap them up with paper before removal to enhance user’s protection. Click here to learn more about skips.

Can I put a skip on the road?

Apart from the cost of hiring a skip, the area in which to place the large item is another major concern for individuals looking to hire a skip. So if you’re wondering whether you can place your hired skip on the road, there are four legal requirements that applies and must be complied with for your protection in the situation whereby a third party accident takes place. Deciding to overlook these conditions can lead to a fine or forceful removal of the skip by the local council.

Here are the compulsory legal requirements that must be fully complied with:

• Get A Permit

The local council gives out a permit for skips to be placed on the road. This permit must be acquired and the cost may vary depending on the local council in your area.

• Illuminate The Skip

Since the skip is to be placed on the road, then it’ll only make sense to have it illuminated at night or in low lighting situations for safety of all road users. According to the law, lights must be positioned at each end of the skip to be easily spotted.

• Use Cones

According to the law, a minimum of two (2) cones must be placed on the skip’s approach side for the protection of all road users.

• Comply With The Skip Requirements

You can’t place just any skip you like on the road. By the law, there are certain conditions that must be met by the skip itself before placement. It must be painted with the yellow colour on the sides, have both the owner’s name and phone number clearly written on it and must also possess a BS AU152:1970 complying red and yellow fluorescent reflective marking which is compulsory to be acquired within two (2) working days upon filling.

How much is it to hire a skip?

If you’re considering a house move, garden work or building project, one of the most common questions that comes to mind is, how much it would cost to hire a skip?

It is widely known that a skip represents one of the best and most affordable ways to get rid of your unwanted rubbish or waste. However, the determination of the cost of a skip hire depends on a number of factors such as your location, the size of the required skip, the skip hire duration as well as the requirement or otherwise of a skip hire permit.

The most significant determinant of a skip hire cost is the size required. The most common skip sizes are 4 and 8 cubic yard and as expected, the larger skips come at more expensive prices than the smaller ones. This is due to the fact that it can contain a larger amount of unwanted waste or rubbish. Generally, the skip hire price includes the delivery, collection and disposal of the waste. The more the waste, the larger the size of skip to be hired, which means a lot more expenses to be made.

Another factor that determines the cost of a skip hire is the duration. The standard duration of a skip hire is 2 weeks (14 days), however, this period can be extended for just a small amount so far a due notice is provided. Location is also another great determinant and that works considering the number of other skip hire companies in the area.

Overall, a small sized skip costs within the range of £90 to £130 per week, whereas a large sized skip of up to 12 yards for the same amount of time jumps up considerably to a range of £250 to £440. Click here to learn more about skip prices.

Can you put paint in a skip?

There are a wide range of household rubbish and wastes you can put in a skip. But unfortunately though, paint cans and leftover paints isn’t one. Furthermore, not only is a liquid paint restricted from skips and landfills, but they are also banned by the council. Frustratingly, because it’s hazardous to the environment and blockages it can create in the pipe, pouring paint right down the drain is never an option as well. So what then is the best way to get rid of your leftover paint? Surprisingly, you have quite a number of options which we’ll share with you.

• Is the paint unused and unopen? For unopened paints, you can simply return them back to the seller either for an exchange or for a refund. Obviously, this will require a receipt and if unavailable, then you might want to consider the other options below.

• Is it just little paint leftover? Since it has been specifically banned from skips and it’s just a small amount of paint, you can get a bit creative with the disposal method. Simply get a cardboard or other papers, paint it with the remaining paint and dry it out. Once dried, you can then dispose the cardboard or paper alongside other permitted wastes in the skip.

• Is it a large amount of paint? For large amounts, you can contact some of your friends or family who might need it to get the paints off your hands. If you are unable to dispose any or all, there are online platforms like Freegle or Freecycle where there are people willing and ready to get leftover paints in large quantities.

• Is it unusable? If positive, then the giveaway option is completely neutralized. The best bet here is to leave your paint out to dry if it has gone past its usable days, then take it to a household waste recycling centre.
