Skip Sizes

If you trying to decide what size skip to hire? If in doubt, R&R Recycling recommend that you choose a larger size skip than you think you might need. If in doubt please call us, we are always happy to give advise and help.

R&R Recycling Domestic & Commercial Skip Sizes Explained

It is illegal to overload your skip and you will be charged for the removal of any excess waste if a larger skip is required. So if you are in any doubt as to what size skip you need to hire, it’s best to go for the bigger size – and save yourself extra cost and hassle!

Please note that these skips are for general waste only – not fridges, TV’s, monitors or any kind of hazardous waste (including paints, solvents, liquids or asbestos). Don’t worry if you need to dispose of any hazardous items – we can help you with that too, simply contact R&R Recycling.

If you need to place your skip on the road you will need to contact your local council for a skip permit. Again, R&R Recycling can arrange this for you, so please contact us for advice and help.
