What size skip do I need?

If you have a lot of rubbish to get rid of in Eastbourne it is worth considering skip hire to solve your waste issues.

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes which makes them useful for any number of projects, regardless of how big or small. The price of skip hire depends on the size you require and the waste that needs disposing of. It is important to choose your skip size wisely as choosing the correct size is the most cost effective way to order a skip.

For small garden or house clearances, a mini skip (2, 3 or 4 yard) should be sufficient. All garden waste including branches and bushes can be put into a skip which makes them great for a garden project where you might end up with bulky shrubs or soil that can’t fit or be put in your green waste bin.

The medium size or builders skip (6 yard) is the most common size that we hire out. This is ideal for larger projects that may involve construction waste such as rubble or tarmac. This is also the largest size skip we would recommend for soil so can be used for garden renovation or driveway installations where there is a lot of heavy waste. If you are having a new driveway and you need to have a skip on the road then please speak to us about skip licences.

For lots of light bulky waste including furniture from a house clearance or renovation, a large skip would be recommended. These vary from 8 yard to 12 yard and are only suitable for general rubbish so could not be filled with soil or rubble. (If you have this amount of soil or rubble it may be worth considering a grab lorry)
