Why hire a skip?
Hiring a skip is an ecological way to dispose of your waste. Skip hire companies will help to sort your waste to ensure that as little rubbish 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 Sizes
4 Yard Skip – Approx 25-35 Bin Bags – Uses: Small Kitchen and Bathroom projects. 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.
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 vale for money.
8 Yard Skip – Approx 60-75 Bin Bags – Uses: Residential or shop refurbishment. This 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 YardSkip – 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.
