There’s a lot of choice when it comes to skip hire. You need to choose what skip size best suits your requirements.
We measure skip size by their internal volume, referred to as ‘cubic yards’ or ‘yards’. One cubic yard can fit about ten bin bags in.
What Can I Put In A Skip?
When trying to work out what skip size you need, you first need to consider what’s going in it. You can put almost anything in a skip, but there are a few prohibited items.
We won’t accept hazardous waste, oils, asbestos, car oil, chemicals, pesticides, solvents or anything containing ozone-depleting substances. This list is not exhaustive, so get in contact if you’re not sure whether your waste can be put in a skip.
Additional charges apply for mattresses, car tyres, televisions and fluorescent tubes.
Once you’ve checked that your waste is appropriate for a skip hire, you need to work out what skip size will suit you.
