Are you trying to decide what size skip to hire? If in doubt, we recommend that you choose a larger size skip than you think you might need. It is illegal to overload your skip and you will be charged for the removal of any excess waste if a larger skip is required. So if you are in any doubt as to what size skip you need to hire, it's best to go for the bigger size - and save yourself loads of cost and hassle!

Please note that these skips are for general waste only - not fridges, TV's, monitors or any kind of hazardous waste (including paints, solvents, liquids or asbestos). Don't worry if you need to dispose of any hazardous items - we can help you with that too, simply contact us for advice.

If you need to place your skip on the road you will need to contact CNES for a skip permit.

The different skip sizes are also commonly known as "2-yarders", "6-yarders" etc, reflecting their cubic capacity. If you are unsure what size skip you need for the job give us a call.
