At Caerphilly Skips, we are true believers in managing your waste effectively, helping to reduce overall negative impacts on our environment. We provide various skips, including different sizes to cater to your waste needs, helping to ensure that your unwanted waste will be directed to an authorised site, that can be taken care of. 

What are roll-on-roll-off skips? Our roll-on roll-off skips consist of a large container created for the overall collection and transportation of large bulks of waste materials to authorised sites. The ‘Roll-on-Roll-off’ mechanism was designed to represent the easy loading and off-loading of waste into skips from a specialised truck.

How do roll-on-roll-off skips work?

The roll-on-roll-off mechanism works by involvement in the skip being ‘rolled’ onto the back of a truck in order to be transported to the designated space that contains the waste, being ‘rolled off’ at the place of destination in order to load up the skip until the waste is gone. This is often facilitated by a hook that carries the skip, making transportation and arrangement of the placement efficient and at low risk.

Advantages of using roll-on-roll-off skips 

There are many advantages that come with using our roll-on-roll-off skips, due to how they reduce waste and positively impact our environment. Reaching out to us will ensure that you will get a skip-sized to perfection. Here are some advantages of purchasing our roll-on-roll-off skips:


The roll-off-roll-on mechanism will allow for quick and efficient loading and unloading of waste materials into the skip. This will offer a much quicker alternative to transport these materials instead of traditional skip bins, where they can potentially be left for your use of loading them for a couple of days.


Regardless of their larger structure, roll-on-roll-off skips tend to be much more cost-effective in comparison to traditional skips for projects with larger waste disposal needs. The reduced need for continuous transportation and disposal, due to the large volume of space located in the skip will actually result in saving costs over time.

Space saving

The roll-on-roll-off system minimises the designated space used for the on-loading and offloading of waste materials in alternative to the original skip bins. This is very beneficial for small domestic sites where there is not much available space 


The efficiency involved with the on-loading and unloading of roll-on-roll-off skips ensures that you save so much time on the overall waste management performance. This can be very important for construction projects and many other tight-time-oriented situations.

Reduced Environmental Impact

By being able to reduce the number of trips needed to transport the waste will contribute to reducing fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. This will positively align with environmental sustainability regulations in helping to create a clean and well-reputed environment and society.

Safety Considerations

When using a roll-on-roll-off skip, there are a few risks involved that could lead to potential damage or corrosion with plans, here are a few safety risks to consider:

Site Planning

It is important that you plan the site layout to ensure you can accommodate the room for the size and movement of the skip. You need to consider if there is more than enough room for movement when loading, offloading and transportation.

Securement During Transportation

It is essential to ensure that you properly secure the roll-on-roll-off skip to the transport vehicle to avoid the risk of shifting or tipping during the transportation process. To confirm this, use appropriate restraints such as straps, which will secure the skip in place when travelling to and from the destination. 

Hazardous Materials

If you will be potentially handling hazardous materials, you must ensure that there are specialised individuals who are trained and capable of following all correct procedures to carry out this project. You should be using signals, radios and other sources of communication to make certain that everyone involved is aware of the location of the hazardous waste at every stage.
