Why hire a skip?

Choosing to hire a skip is an ecological method of waste disposal.  Skip hire companies will help to sort your waste to ensure that as little waste as possible ends up in landfill. This reduces the amount of harmful greenhouse gases and prevents damage to the environment. It is estimated that 50% of landfill is made up of paper, a material that can be easily and safely be recycled.

Skip hire companies will be required to pay a landfill tax of around £90 per ton of waste and therefore they aim to reduce this amount as much as possible. Skip hire companies will actively sort through your waste and separate it into different materials for reuse in other industries such as gardening, construction and electricity generation. Waste Management companies are under increasing pressure to actively manage waste streams to ensure minimal impact on the environment. Waste can end up in landfill sites, this creates harmful greenhouse gases such as methane. The majority of waste can be reused, recycled of reclaimed, this prevents waste ending up in landfill sites.

Skip Hire Prices

Skip hire prices vary depending on the skip size that you need for your project (amount of waste) and type of waste. Sizes range from 4 cubic yard mini skips, with prices from around £135 to extra large size skips (12 yard skips) with prices from around £300. Used for small projects such as re-tiling a bathroom to the disposal of large amounts of commercial construction waste. The table below gives a guide to sizes and cost, capacity and recommended uses of skips. Find more info in our Skip Size guide

Skip Sizes

4 Yard Skip – Approx 25-35 Bin Bags – Uses: Small Kitchen and Bathroom projects or garden waste. The 4 yd skip can be used for most household renovations and will fit on the majority of drives. Some companies even have smaller skip wagons that can deliver these smaller skips where a larger vehicle couldn’t, this may mean they can be delivered to properties with more difficult access, potentially saving the price of a road permit.

6 Yard Skip – Approx 40-55 Bin Bags – Uses: Medium kitchen or bathroom renovations. These skips are sometimes called Midi Skips. Midi Skips are a less popular size as smaller renovations can be taken care of with a mini skip and if more yardage is needed the 8 yard skip usually represents better value for money.

8 Yard Skip – Approx 60-75 Bin Bags – Uses: Residential or shop refurbishment. This 8 yard skip size is also known as a builders skip, it is the most common size used by trades people and construction companies. Builders skips are big enough to hold a large amount of waste from medium size jobs. Big enough for renovations but small enough that they will fit on most residential streets and even some large driveways 

12 Yard Skip – Approx 90-110 Bin Bags – Uses: Large office or house clearance. These should not be filled with concrete, bricks or soil. Known as Large skips, a 12 yard skip would be ideal for those bigger waste disposal jobs. Consideration must be made for the size of this type of skip as they will not fit on the majority of driveways. As such may require a permit if planned to be left on public highways.
