What Can I fit in my Mini Skip?

As the left hand panel displays mini skips are ideal for household and garden waste. The mini skips we hire are approximately 2 cubic yards (1.5m x 1.2m x 0.75m or 5' long x 4' wide x 2'6" in height). As a guide line the equivalent of around 30 full bin liners would fit in a mini skip. As with larger skips, if you wish to have a mini skip placed on a public highway you will need a skip permit. However at 24-7 skips we will apply for this skip hire permit online for you.

Of course there is more to mini skip hire than a competitive price alone - there are a number of benefits to booking your skip with 24-7, the flexibility and reliability of our service being key - when we tell you your skip is booked and coming, it is definately coming - on-time, as promised. Items you will not be allowed to place in a mini skip are those which are considered to be hazardous waste such as paint, tyres, fridges and fridge freezers, asbestos and vehicle batteries. Many electrical items can be taken back to the place of purchase under the WEEE dircetive, where they are obliged to take them back and dispose of them appropriately.

As responsible waste handlers we strive to direct waste away from landfill where possible and make use of facilities which recycle wherever possible.
