The size of skip that you require will depend upon the type of work being carried out. Here is a brief guide to assist you in the process.

  • For small domestic renovations or garage clear outs we would suggest a “mini” or “small” skip. These are approximately 2 to 3.5 cubic yards or ~1600 litres. This sized skip would equate to approximately 16 to 20 bin bags. *1
  • The next size up skip is referred to as a “midi” or “medium” skip. These are approximately 4 cubic yards or ~3000 litres and are ideal for medium sized domestic projects such as home improvement or garden projects. This sized skip would equate to approximately 30 to 35 bin bags. *1
  • The most frequently hired skip is the “maxi” or “large builders” skip. These are approximately 6 to 8 cubic yards or ~6000 litres and are ideal for large sized domestic projects such as multiroom home improvement or large landscaping garden projects. This sized skip would equate to approximately 50 to 60 bin bags. *1
  • Larger skips are also available. Please contact our Sales team in order to get a competitive price on your skip requirements. We also offer skips with doors for easy loading and lockable skips for extra security. Please contact our Sales team for further information.

*1 – Please use the above measurements as a guide only. The bin bag guide is only to give you a rough approximation. The amount of bin bags that will go into a skip depends upon material and density of the waste going into it.

1 cubic yard is roughly equivalent to 10 bin bags of waste – or two standard sizes wheelie bins
