Which skip size is right for my home project?

If you’re scratching your head and asking which skip size would best suit your home project, then you’re in luck. This month we’re going to take a look at a variety of home DIY tasks, explaining the type of waste materials involved and which size skip would best suit that particular bit of work.

If you’ve never undertaken your particular project before, or you’ve forgotten just how much waste you produced last time, it can be hard to know which skip size to hire. Now, with our handy guide, you’ll be able to confidently order a skip for your home DIY project.

Garden Work

Getting out there in and amongst the jungle that is your plants, trees and hedges can mean that you produce a lot of garden waste. Alternatively, it could be some hard landscaping you’re looking to get done, with old paving which needs disposing of along with quantities of earth you’ve dug out.

What materials?

  • Foliage
  • Branches
  • Soil
  • Stone
  • Sand
  • Wooden fencing

Skip size required: 3 yard mini skip

Loft Conversion
