What Will Be Going Into The Skip?

What goes into the skip will have a bearing on what size skip you decide to get. If you are clearing out a small area then a smaller skip would logically be needed. If you are clearing out an office with chairs and desks then a bigger skip is needed this is due to the size not the weight. And if you have need of a skip to clear out bricks and rubble then it is likely that a larger skip is required due to the volume and weight of the items

Different Sizes And Different Capacities

For domestic uses we recommend nothing larger than an 8 yard skip. These sized skips can hold around 80 black bags of waste and look like the conventionally sized skips that you see at other residential properties. Anything in between and including are all perfect for huge ranges of services and needs that they will be able to fulfill. The scope of the project really does reflect which size skip you would require.

Skip Sizes And Their Uses 


  • 2 - 2.5 yard skips. These are our smallest sized mini skips and are fantastic for small projects that doesn't require a massive amount of room in the skip for all the waste but still supplies enough room to have your needs met 
  • 4 yard skip - these are ideal for refurbishments that have a good amount of waste but do not require a large skip.
  • 8 yard skip -  this is our biggest size skip! It is the type that you usually see that are used for larger projects, this can range from full house renovations to construction jobs. This skip is usually referred to as the builders skip due to its versatile usage.
