Or you could get a traditional skip. These are the metal skips that are typically used by tradesmen when doing work. There are numerous sizes of this type and they start from a two-yard skip. The typical capacity for these is 20 or 30 bin bags.
The size of the largest skips can be eight yards. These have a capacity of up to 80 bin bags. These are one of the most commonly used skips by builders. If you have an exceptional need, there is the possibility to hire a 40 yard roll on, roll-off skip. These have a capacity of up to 400 bin bags.
