Skip Hire from LAS is a great way of efficiently and responsibly disposing of all waste. As one of Mid and West Wales leading Skip Hire companies, no project is too big
or small.

With over 40 years experience, we know how important the prompt delivery and collection of a skip can be to ensure seamless operations.

Our Skip Hire service is convenient, easy to use and ensures that you remain fully compliant with all relevant waste legislation.

We supply a vast range of skips in different sizes to help you tackle everything from small domestic work to large industrial projects.

What can’t I put in the skip?

For legal reasons, we cannot accept the following materials in the skip:

  • Plasterboard
  • Oils and paints
  • Asbestos
  • Chemicals and solvents
  • Electrical items inc. fridges and freezers
  • Gas containers
  • Clinical waste
  • Batteries

Please note that mattresses and tyres are charged separately.

Do I need a road permit?

If you need to have your skip placed on the road, you will need to obtain a skip hire permit. We can apply for the permit on your behalf. It is illegal to place a skip on a public highway without permission. In cases where it is not possible leave the skip on the public roadway, a ‘wait & load’ service can be provided.

How long can I keep a skip?

Usually, skips are kept on customer sites anywhere from 1 to 14 days; but you can keep a skip for as long as it is needed. If your skip is on the road, you will need to check the length of time covered by your permit.

Lead time?

Generally we aim to deliver and collect skips within three working days of request – so if it’s important the skip is delivered or collected by a certain date, then please be sure to give us a reasonable amount of notice.


Please note skips must be level loaded and safe to transport. If overloaded skips are deemed unsafe to transport this will incur additional charges.

Skip wait and load?

It isn’t always practical or physically possible to have a skip situated on site for an indefinite period of time, which is where our skip wait and load service offers the perfect solution for all your waste requirements. If your project only requires a quick clearance without the need for a skip to be present for several days, or where space and access constraints exist at a location, then utilise our quick, easy and convenient wait and load service. It’s exactly as it says; we wait while you load, and when you’re done, we take it away, right away.

Weight limit?

The legal weight limit for our skips is 8 tonnes. The customer is responsible for the safekeeping of the skip and it’s contents.
