How Much Skip Capacity Do You Need?

Skips are used to hold varying volumes, depending on the size of your project and capacity needed. For example, if you are dealing with construction waste, one of our large skips available for hire can hold approximately 440 black bin bags. However, our small skips such as the 2 cubic yard skip holds approximately 25 black bin bags, which is more suitable for garden waste. 

Whether you are completing a house clearance or dealing with commercial waste, there are skips available for all your requirements. Deciding on the skip you hire will depend on the amount and types of waste you are throwing away.

Our Skip Hire Service For Commercial Waste

Segregating waste and recycling where possible is vital for commercial and industrial projects with bulky waste. Not only do Bailey’s Skip Hire provide maxi skips for these large projects, but also waste compactors to reduce the volume of waste being created.

These are a great way to maximise space, and promote a safe working environment without bin bags of waste scattered across the area. They will also save you time and money by reducing collections/transportation needed, and reducing labour time handling the waste.

As a business, you have a duty to act in an environmentally-friendly manner to boost green credentials and build a sustainable working environment. With our services, we can manage all types of recycling and deliver and collect skips on flexible time schedules. All of the waste, where possible, will be recycled into new products to reintroduce to the market.

One of the most popular skips to hold larger amounts of waste includes our 16 cubic yard skip and our heavy-duty 35 yard roll on roll off skip: Perfect for cardboard, paper, wood, metals, and plastics. These industrial containers are even offered with same day skip delivery and waste collection, and we can help you obtain a council permit for placement on public property.
