How Big Is A Mini Skip In The UK

How Big Is A Mini Skip

The smallest skip size at Bailey’s Skip Hire, also known as the mini, is the 2-yard skip. This has the capacity of approximately 25 black bin bags of waste, and is most popular for home DIY projects or garden waste. Because it is a small skip it ideally suits being placed on a drive and is handy for small amounts of waste at home.

How To Choose The Right Skip Size

Domestic Skips

The 2 cubic yard mini skip and 4 cubic yard midi skip are the most popular sizes for domestic home projects. This size is perfect for moving small loads of waste that may have been created from small building projects such as bathroom refurbishments or garden clearances. The 4 cubic yard midi skip holds the equivalent of 45 black bin bags so it has a great capacity for a range of waste types.

Builders Skip

The most popular skip for builders includes the 6 yard skip. This suits professional builders looking to throw a variety of waste such as rubble, hard-core, soil, or plastics. If you have a larger project to tackle, you may benefit from the 12 yard skip and upwards. This will give you more space for any larger projects that may require a bigger sized skip.

Roll On Roll Off Skips

These industrial and commercial skips are perfect to store large amounts of waste such as metals, plastic, wood, cardboard and plastic. The maxi skips we provide are most often hired by businesses for commercial waste such as construction projects and warehouse clearances. The two largest skips we have available include the 35 and 40 yard, holding approximately 400 bin bags.
