How much waste do skips hold?

We offer a range of skips so that our customers can hire the skip that’s right for them and won’t waste their money by hiring a skip that is too big for their requirements. Our smallest skip is the 2 tonne skip  which will hold approximately 25 rubbish bags.

Our full range of skips and the approximate number of rubbish bags they will hold is summarised below:

Skip size Approximate Rubbish Bag Capacity
2 Tonne 25
4 Tonne 45
8 Tonne 85
12 Tonne 120
14 Tonne 145
15 Tonne RORO 200
20 Tonne RORO 220
40 Tonne RORO 440

We ask that you only load the skip up to the level of the top of the skip i.e. don’t mound rubbish over the top of the skip. Doing so will prevent the skip from being loaded onto the truck when we pick it up to take away.
