Need help choosing a Skip?

We know that choosing the right skip size to suit your project can be difficult.  Often, you do not know how much waste you will be creating before you start. Skips come in a range of sizes from mini skips that take 15-20 full black bin sacks up to 14 yards skips which are twice the size of a small hatchback car.

Typically, skips are measured in cubic yards, which also makes it harder to visualise how much the skip will hold.

Our skip chooser tool will guide you through the various sizes and give you a much better visual idea of what you might need.

Measurements are provided in both imperial and metric measurements, with examples of skip contents to help you to choose the correct skip size.
