When Do You Need to Use a Roro Container?


roro skip being emptiedRORO containers, or ‘roll-on roll-off’ skips are ideal for industrial and commercial waste disposal, where they can be used to safely and reliably carry heavy and bulky construction waste. Here, we explain a little more about when you should be using a RORO container as opposed to a large chain lift skip or another type of container.

Whatever the type of waste you need disposing of, with our guidance in this article you can understand a little more about when and when not to use this type of skip.

Projects which benefit from use of a RORO

RORO containers can be used for the following types of job:

  • large and bulky construction waste (as mentioned above)
  • light general waste
  • soil and hardcore
  • household waste
  • inert waste

Instances in which a RORO should not be used

In the following instances, ROROs cannot be used as they are not appropriate for the projects in question:

  • Roads and driveways – this is because the ROROs are too big to be placed on the road or driveway
  • Heavy waste – this is because roll off skips involve an excess tipping charge when over a certain weight
  • Wet concrete
  • Hazardous waste – this is because to transport such waste, you need a closed container
