What size bin will I need? 

The size of a skip bin will vary depending on the type of waste that you are disposing of and the quantity. Our skip bins are measured in cubic metres and we often recommend sizing up to avoid overfilling or multiple hires. 

An easy way to understand the capacity of a skip bin, is to compare with wheelie bins and trailers. 

  • A smaller skip bin such as a 2 cubic metre bin will hold the same as 8 wheelie bins and 2 trailer loads
  • A 4 cubic metre bin is roughly equivalent to 12 wheelie bins and 4 trailer loads
  • A larger bin like 6 cubic metres will have the same capacity as 24 wheelie bins and 6 trailer loads

If you’re unsure about what size is best suited for your project, please contact our friendly team today.
