Also known as the "Mini Skip", this skip will hold around 15-20 bin bags, making it best suited for very small domestic projects -- a garden tidy up, for example. Although 2-yard skips are usually difficult to acquire, we have an extensive list of reliable suppliers, ensuring that any Trade Skips customer needing a Mini Skip will get one.


Known as the "Midi Skip", this skip has a capacity of around 30-40 bin bags, perfect for a small household project like a small bathroom or kitchen refit. Since Midi Skips cost little more than a Mini Skip, many of our customers purchase the 4-yard skip over the 2-yard in anticipation of any excess waste.


Referred to in the trade as the "builder's skip", the 6-yard skip is very popular for handling common building waste such as rubble, concrete and soil, as well as general household waste. A 6-yard skip will usually hold the equivalent of between 50-60 bin bags of waste.



The 8-yard skip is the most popular of our skip sizes. With a capacity of 60-80 bin bags, it is the largest skip size that we recommend for dealing with heavy building waste such as concrete, rubble and soil. The 8-yard skip is also great for handling larger deposits of household waste.



The 10-yard skip is ideal for light-to-medium weight or bulky waste items, such as scraps of wood, metal or plastics. Perfect for big house clearances and large amount of garden waste, it has a capacity of around 80-100 bin bags.



The 12-yard skip, or "Maxi Skip", is ideal for large house or office clearances with light-to-medium, bulky waste types. It can hold the equivalent of 100-120 bin bags. The Maxi Skip cannot, however, be used for heavy waste types due to certain weight restrictions. Instead, we would recommend multiple 8-yard skips for large amount of heavy waste such as rubble soil and concrete. 



The 20 Yard Roll-on roll-off are widely used for disposing of large volume, low density waste such as light construction waste, factory waste and demolition waste. These low sided Roll-on Roll-off containers are easily accessible for loading and will hold between 160-200 bin bags



The 40 Yard Roll-on Roll-off skip is the largest container we provide. Holding around 350-400 bin bags it offers economy of scale, allowing you to dispose of large volumes of waste for a great price. The 40 yard roro is ideal for light construction waste as well as large industrial waste such as cardboard, paper, plastics, wood and metal.
