The guide below will help you to choose the right skip. We have skips for any project, waste collection or refurbishment
6 yard small builders skip
The ‘6 yarder’ is one of the most common skip sizes. It's well suited to DIY or building projects like kitchen refurbishments and bathroom rip-outs. You'll frequently see this size of skip on residential properties. The capacity of this skip is equivalent to 50-60 bin bags. You will need a permit for this skip if you plan to locate it on the road or public highway (including pathways). We can help you get a permit if you'd rather not arrange it yourself.
8 yard large builders skip
The 8-yard skip is another common sight in residential areas and commercial properties and is the biggest available skip for heavy waste like soil, rubble or concrete Common uses include office and residential refurbishment projects, building and garden work and office clearances. this skip can hold the equivalent of 60-80 bin bags. The term ‘builders skip’ comes from its popularity with the building trade.
10 yard maxi skip
the 10 yard or maxi skip is ideal for large waste clearances and large refurbishment projects in both domestic and commercial settings. It can hold 80-100 bin bags but must not be used for heavy waste like soil, rubble, bricks or concrete because the skip lorry will not be able to lift it
12 yard maxi skip
Like the 10 yarder, the 12 yard skip is also ideal for large waste clearances and large refurbishment projects in both domestic and commercial settings. It can hold 100-120 bin bags but must not be used for heavy waste like soil, rubble, bricks or concrete because the skip lorry will not be able to lift it.
