Mini and Midi

For a smaller waste load, mini and midi skips are available in sizes 2,3 and 4 yards.

Maxi - Builders skips

For larger commercial loads the popular 'builders skips' are available in sizes 6 and 8 yards.

Large skips

Large skips are available from 12-16-yard skips. High sides make the skip ideal for bulky items of waste.

Roll on Roll off skips

There are two main types of roll on off skips available. 15-20yard skips are available for greater volumes of waste and ideal for heavy materials. Larger 40yard roll on off skips are used for larger volumes of 'light' waste. This skip is not suitable for heavy materials.

Enclosed skips

Enclosed skips are also available for the safe storage and disposal of larger volumes of waste. Waste includes general or recycling materials, heavy and bulky materials, inert materials and dry wastes. Enclosed skips are ideal for hazardous wastes or in areas where security is an issue whilst also protecting its contents from the elements. Fastenings are available for the option to lock if necessary.
