What skip size do I need?

Stuck when deciding which skip size you’ll need for your next project? Let us help you plan your resources effectively with our guide to skip sizes and make sure you get the right skip for your requirements. Whatever job you’re taking on.

4 yard skip

4 yard skips hold 4 tonnes of waste, which is the equivalent of 40 bin bags or 13 wheelie bins full of rubbish. This is the smallest skip size we generally have available. This skip size is usually used for small kitchen or bathroom renovations under XXm3.

6 yard skip

Our most popular small skip size, 6 yard skips can hold 6 tonnes of waste. This is roughly equivalent to 60 bin bags or 19 wheelie bins. This size is ideal for standard domestic refurbishment projects and house clearances.

8 yard skip

8 yard skips are used comfortably for the average loft clearance, perfect for larger scale house projects. They’ll hold up to 8 tonnes of weight, which is equal to around 80 bin bags or 25 wheelie bins of household waste.

10 yard skip

This is the largest skip that can generally be used for domestic projects, with sufficient space for most house clearance jobs. We’d recommend filling a 10 yard skip with lighter waste where possible, as the weight limit on this skip size is 10 tonnes, which works out as roughly 100 bin bags or 32 wheelie bins.

12 yard skip

If you’re undertaking a particularly large house clearance project or are looking for small office clearance solutions, you’re likely to need a 12 yard skip. Holding up to 12 tonnes of weight, this size of skip can handle light, bulky items such as furniture.

14 yard skip

Common use in commercial projects or larger scale domestic works with a reasonable amount of bulky waste. Think office clearances and 4 bedroom home renovations. Just make sure you have room for this 14 yard skip size on your site!

16 yard skip

The largest standard skip offered via our network (subject to availability). The 16 yard skip is perfect for larger scale commercial clearance projects. These skips deal with the heavier waste items on industrial sites.
