2-yard Skip Hire
If you are looking for a cheap and small waste removal solution, a 2-yard skip hire may be just what you need. These skips are normally referred to as mini skips, due to their small size, and are popular with domestic bookings, or as a secondary skip on commercial sites.
How much does a 2-yard skip cost to hire?
2-yard skips are the smallest and cheapest to hire, with prices normally ranging from £60 to £100. The price reflects the amount of waste that can be thrown into a 2-yard skip, which is far less than larger skips.
How much waste can a 2-yard mini skip hold?
2-yard skips can hold approximately 25 black bin bags of rubbish, which is often enough for many small domestic jobs. When hiring a mini skip, it is important not to overfill beyond the guidelines, as you may be charged additional costs.
What are the dimensions of a 2-yard skip?
The dimensions of a skip often vary between manufacturers and suppliers, but generally the dimensions of a 2-yard skip will be 5ft (1.52m) long x 4ft (1.22m) wide x 3ft (0.91m) high.
What can I put into a 2-yard skip?
Whilst skips are perfect for most types of waste, it is important to remember that there are some prohibited items. Items that can be thrown into a skip include organic waste, furniture, rubble, domestic waste, plastic, metal, wood, and much more. Items that you cannot throw into a skip include gas cylinders, hazardous waste, asbestos, electrical items, tyres, fluorescent bulbs chemicals and paint.
What types of jobs are 2-yard skips useful for?
Mini skips, including the 2-yard skip, are extremely popular with domestic and private clients. These skips provide sufficient rooms for smaller DIY projects and home improvement, such as a small garden clearance or bathroom refit. 2-yard skips are also popular on building sites as a secondary skip, for items that cannot be thrown away with mixed waste, such as plasterboard.
Will I need a skip hire permit?
Skip permits are required when placing a skip on council land, such as a public road. If you are able to place the skip on your own land, you will not require a permit. Due to the small size of 2-yard mini skips, they can often be placed on privately owned land, such as a drive or front garden, even if space is limited. Although the skip is only small, it is important to remember that the delivery truck will need access to deliver the skip to your chosen location.
