Mini Skip Hire
A mini skip is the name given to the smallest available skips. Mini skips are normally available in two sizes, 2-yard skips and 3-yard skips. Mini skips are perfect when you only have a small amount of waste, or have restricted space to place a skip. Mini skips are an affordable waste removal solution, as well as being sustainable and environmentally friendly due to the high rates of recycling.
Uses of Mini Skips
Mini skips are useful for an array of different jobs, both domestic and commercial. They are common with domestic clients, who only need a small skip for their household job. They are commonly used for garden clean ups, as well as bathroom or kitchen refits, where only a relatively small amount of waste will be created.
In the past, mini skips were mostly used for domestic jobs, however since the legislation changes regarding the disposal of plasterboard with other waste materials, the use of mini skips at commercial sites has significantly increased. Mini skips dedicated to plasterboard waste can be hired alongside larger skips, which will be used for the remainder of the waste.
