What is a builders skip?
If you don’t know what this particular type of skip is, the name ‘builders skip’ is a catch-all term. We use it to refer to 6 and 8 yard skips.
These particular skips are extremely versatile. Domestic and commercial customers alike appreciate them for the amount of space. In fact, they have sufficient capacity for most jobs. At the same time, they are still small enough to place on private land with ease. This last part is especially vital as it can save you money on skip hire permits.
One particularly important detail to remember here is that 6 yards and 8 yards are both terms relating to the skip’s capacity rather than its length. Prior to hiring, make certain you are clear on what the precise measurements are. Speak to us and we will ensure you have the best builders skips Thornaby can offer. Our team will provide all the advice you need.
How much can builders skips hold?
Even those slightly smaller builders skips are famous for their outstanding capacity. This is a large part of the reason they are as popular as they are with industrial, commercial, and domestic clients.
Generally, 6 yard skips can hold 55 to 60 large black bin bags of waste. As for 8 yard skips, they can hold 70 and 80 bags. Of course, providing a more exact answer is trickier because it depends on what kind of rubbish you have. Massive bulky waste like bricks is going to fill a container quicker than say soil.
Like we said before, builders skips are among the UK’s most popular skip types. They offer users that perfect balance between being compact enough to go on private land but large enough to hold a great deal of litter. Some of the domestic jobs they are useful for include home renovations, extensions, common maintenance jobs, and home or garage clearances. Then there are commercial and industrial uses. Examples include office and retail clear outs, general landscaping, and digging foundations.
What waste can I put in these skips?
You can employ builders skips for most kinds of waste. This is as long as they are legal to dispose of in a skip. The types of garden waste you can dispose of include foliage, tree branches, non-contaminated soil, and wood. Suitable building rubbish includes bricks, metal, and plastic. With household waste, you can put non-electrical fittings, furniture, and packaging like cardboard in a skip.
The rule of thumb here is if an item or material has the potential to cause harm, you may not be able to put it in a skip. That is why you can’t throw paint tins, chemicals, and plasterboard in skips. If you are unsure whether anything is suitable, contact us and we will help.
