Your choice of the size will primarily depend upon the nature of your waste. For household and domestic waste, smaller skips would be required whereas large or RORO (roll off roll on) containers or vats would be apt for waste that results from large scale construction or demotion projects. Traditionally, skip sizes have been indexed in yards but metric measurements are more extensively used these days.
Skip sizes generally range from 3-30 cubic meters (4-40 cubic yards). A skip with dimensions of 3-4 cubic meters would be ideal for filling out kitchen or bathroom renovation waste. 4-6 cubic meters bins would come handy when you’d need to dispose of bulky waste like furniture during house clearances, kitchen or bathroom renovations and so on. This size of skip is particularly needed by building contractors for small projects when soil or concrete waste needs to be cleared.
6-9 cubic meters rubbish bins are the largest in their category that is typically used for heavy construction wastes such as bricks, earth, loose soil and concrete. It is also pressed into service where a large amount of household waste is generated during relocations or house shifts.
It can be an ideal option for a small construction project. 10-12 cubic meters skip bins would fit the bill during extensive house clearances, shop refits, gardening waste, excavation waste, and remodelling projects.
Skip bins of 15-30 cubic meters are best used for very large construction, renovation or demolition projects where a massive amount of debris is generated. Your skip bin hire services will help you out with opting for the right size that you’d need.
You’d need to be careful about what can go into your skip and what not. Generally hazardous and polluting materials like asbestos or asphalt, toxic and chemical waste are not allowed to be disposed off in a skip.
