2 Yards

2 Yard Skips

Measuring approximately 0.9m x 1.6m x 1.2m (HxLxW)*, this small skip is ideal for smaller commercial or residential jobs. It is perfect for small gardening jobs, house waste, or a small room renovation job. It is also a great choice if you are having a spring clean of your home and have a few items that you need to discard. Our 2 yard skips can hold up to 2 tonnes of rubbish. This is equivalent to 6 wheelie bins or 20 bin bags.

3 Yards

It is also ideal for garden projects where you will be creating a large amount of green waste. A 6 yard skip will hold about 19 wheelie bins or 60 bin bags. We also have a 6 yard skip with a drop door. The drop door makes it much easier to load heavier items into the skip.
