If you are considering renting a skip bin for the very first time, it’s quite possible that you have a lot of questions that need to be answered.

Question: What is the right size skip bin for my project and what are the benefits of hiring a Skip?

Answer: It all depends on the amount of waste that you need to dispose of. To help you out, let’s take a look at the different size bins and provide a small explanation.

  • Mini skip – a mini skip bin is typically 1 to 3 yd.³. It will usually hold roughly 20 to 30 large black bags filled with waste.
  • Medium-size skip – a bin of this size is about 3 to 5 yd.³ and can hold roughly 35 to 45 black bags of waste.
  • Builder skip – the builder size is usually 6 to 8 yd.³ and will hold around 65 to 85 black bags of waste.
  • Large skip bin – this is anywhere from 10 to 14 yd.³ and can hold as many as 150 to 210 black bags of waste.

Question: Where can I put my skip bin?

Answer: For a small and medium-sized skip bin, it’s usually easy to fit their bin in your driveway or garden. You’ll typically have to place a larger bin on the road, and you’ll need a Council permit in order to make this happen.

Question: Do I need to know about any safety measures?

Answer: Make sure the waste in the skip bin is not piled so high that it is spilling out all over the place. Place cones around the skip bin and make sure that it is clearly marked with reflective, clear markers.
