Skips Sizes

2 yard skips

Available as Open Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
0.91m/3' 0.76m/2'6" 1.2m/4'

Our 2 yard skips are the smallest in the range and are suitable for minor domestic projects, such as clearing out the loft or a spare room that you’ve been using for storage. They’re small enough that fitting them onto your land – and thus removing the need for a permit – should be relatively easy.

  • Ideal for: small waste disposal jobs that are still far too big for your wheelie bin
  • Holds approximately 20 to 25 filled black bin bags

4 yard skips

Available as Open Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
1.29m/4'3" 0.97m/3'2" 1.83m/6'

A 4 yard skip can be used for small to medium domestic waste clearance and DIY jobs. It is likely to be a good size for taking the waste generated when you have a big clear out at home, tackle an overgrown garden or need to get rid of your old kitchen or bathroom fixtures and fittings prior to a refit.

  • Ideal for: a garage/garden clearance or a kitchen/bathroom refit
  • Holds approximately 40 to 45 filled black bin bags

6 yard skips

Available as Open Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
1.52m/5' 1.22m/4' 2.6m/8'6"

Popularly known as a small builders skip, a 6 yard skip is ideal for small commercial and construction projects – its size means that it can be fully loaded with heavy items such as bricks, soil and rubble without causing any weight issues. It’s also a popular choice for larger domestic waste jobs.

  • Ideal for: small commercial and building jobs and large domestic projects
  • Holds approximately 60 to 65 filled black bin bags

8 yard skips

Available as Open Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
1.68m/5'6" 1.22m/4' 3.66m/12'

Probably the most popular size in our range, the 8 yard skip – also known as a builders skip – is the largest size that can be placed on a public highway. It’s ideal for household clearances, industrial waste and, as the name suggests, is commonly used for disposing of building materials, although it should not be completely filled with heavy building waste.

  • Ideal for: household clearances, medium building projects
  • Holds approximately 80 to 85 filled black bin bags

10 yard skips

Available in Open and Enclosed Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
1.78m/5'5' 1.5m/4' 3.74m/12'2'

The 10 yard skip is a good size for large household clearances and renovations or major garden clearances, but cannot be placed on a road, so you’ll need space for it on your property. That makes it more suited to many commercial, construction and industrial applications, such as an office or retail refit.

  • Ideal for: commercial refits and large household clearances
  • Holds approximately 100 to 105 filled black bin bags

12 yard skips

Available in Open and Enclosed Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
1.78m/5'5' 1.68m/5'6" 3.70m/12'1'

Another of the more popular skips in the range, the 12 yard skip can be used for disposing of some bulky items, making it ideal for a lot of commercial and industrial applications. Full household and office clearances are also possible as long as you have somewhere to keep it off the road.

  • Ideal for: full office and household clearances, bulky waste
  • Holds approximately 120 to 125 filled black bin bags

14 yard skips

Available in Open, Enclosed and Compactor Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
1.75m/5'7' 1.8m/5'9" 4.1m/13'4'

When it comes to light construction projects, large commercial and industrial renovation jobs, or even an extra large household or garden clearance, a 14 yard skip has the capacity to cope. As with all our larger skip sizes, it cannot be kept on the road and should not be filled with heavy waste.

  • Ideal for: commercial waste, bulky waste, large household clearances
  • Holds approximately 140 to 150 filled black bin bags

Roll On Roll Off Sizes

20 yard

Available in Open Containers

Skip illustration
Width Height Length
2.25m/7'5' 1.25m/4'1" 6.10m/20'

When we get to the 20 yard skip, we find our smallest roll on roll off skip. As well as having a large capacity suitable for many commercial and industrial waste disposal jobs, it can also be used for heavy waste – such as rubble, soil, bricks, metal and timber – so is ideal for large construction and landscaping projects.

  • Ideal for: construction, site clearances, heavy and bulky waste
  • Holds approximately 200 to 220 filled black bin bags

Available in Open, Enclosed and Compactor Containers

Skip illustration

Its huge capacity means that it’s not only a fast and efficient means of disposing of large quantities of newly-generated waste, but it can also be housed long-term with the need for only infrequent removal. Can be ordered as an open, enclosed or compactor container.

  • Holds approximately 350 to 375 filled black bin bags

Whatever the amount of waste you’re looking to get rid of, this skip will be the quickest and most effective way of dealing with it. Alternatively, if you’re producing a lot of waste but over a longer period of time, its huge size means fewer collections will be needed. Can be ordered as an open or enclosed container.
