What Size Skip Do I Need ?

If you aren't quite sure which is the right size skip, check out the photo at the top of this page which shows the four most common skip sizes with a standard domestic dustbin beside each one to help you visualise which will be right for your needs.

How Much Can I fit a Skip ?

Another way to match skip sizes to your needs is the rough number of black plastic bin bags that will fit into each one.

The table below gives you the overall dimensions of each size of skip, the end heights (how high you will have to lift your waste to put it in) as well as the rough number of domestic dustbin bags that each size of skip will hold as well as which sizes are available with a drop down door.
