How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also provide 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

If I require a skip on the road in Rothesay, will I need to have a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t achievable, you do not have to worry. Simply let us know when making your order, and we will take care of everything.
