What size Skip do I need?

Back to Skip Hire FAQ

We describe the capacity of our skips either in cubic yards/metres or by the approximate number of plastic waste bags that each can hold. Be realistic when estimating how much waste you want to dispose of, since hiring a second skip can be far more costly than one big one!

Remember that all skips must be level-loaded so that they can be legally transported on the road.

For a more substantial collection, it might be worth considering a very large on-site container - contact us for further information.
