If you are planning a big renovation or construction project, or if you have a lot of household waste that needs to be disposed of, then you'll need to hire a skip. But with so many sizes and types available, it can be hard to know which one to choose. Here at Skip Hire Leicestershire, we are experts in skip hire and are happy to guide you through the process of choosing the ideal skip size for your specific needs.

Whether you are a homeowner carrying out a DIY project, or a business owner undertaking a large commercial project, we have the perfect skip for you. We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of skip sizes and types, suitable for any type of waste, and all at competitive prices.
A skip is basically a large metal container with an open top, designed for the collection and transportation of waste. They come in a variety of sizes, from small 2-yard skips to large 40-yard roll on-roll off skips. The size you need will depend on the amount of waste you are producing and the space you have available.
At Skip Hire Leicestershire, we offer skips in the following sizes:
Different types of waste require different types of skips. For example, if you are disposing of heavy materials such as rubble or soil, then you'll need a skip with a higher weight limit. Similarly, if you are throwing away hazardous waste, such as asbestos or chemicals, then you will need a specialist skip with a sealed lid.
At Skip Hire Leicestershire, we offer a variety of skips suitable for different types of waste, including:
When it comes to skip sizes, the term "yard" refers to the volume of the skip. For example, a 6-yard skip can hold roughly 6 cubic yards of waste. It's important to choose the right size skip for your waste, as overfilling can be dangerous and illegal.
Here is a rough guide to the skip sizes available, and the amount of waste they can hold:
Bin bags are a useful way of estimating the amount of waste you need to dispose of. As a general rule, a standard 240L bin bag can hold around 3-4 bin bags worth of waste. This means that a 6-yard skip can hold roughly 20-25 bin bags worth of waste, while a 40-yard skip can hold up to 140 bin bags worth of waste.
If you have limited space available, such as a small driveway, then a skip may not be the best option. In this case, you may be better off with a wheelie bin. Wheelie bins are smaller and more manoeuvrable than skips, and can be placed in convenient locations such as outside your home or business.
At Skip Hire Leicestershire, we offer a variety of wheelie bins in different sizes, suitable for both household and commercial waste.
If you are carrying out a large construction or renovation project, you may need more than one skip. This is because skips have weight limits and can only hold a certain amount of waste.
At Skip Hire Leicestershire, we are happy to provide multiple skips for larger projects. We can also arrange for regular collections, to ensure that your waste is removed efficiently and safely.
A yard skip is a large skip suitable for big projects. They have a high weight limit and can hold a large amount of waste, making them ideal for large construction and renovation projects.
At Skip Hire Leicestershire, we offer a variety of yard skips, including:
