We want your experience of our skip hire services to be a positive one. In our 30 years of trading, we’ve found there’s one thing above all others that can turn a positive experience into something negative – paying more for skips because the supplier has recommended a unit in too large a size. At Epsom Skip Hire, we provide expert advice so that customers in Epsom, Kingston, Leatherhead, Sutton, Weybridge and the surrounding South London and Surrey areas always hire skips in the correct capacity for the job at hand.
Our company also covers many other locations in the capital and the South East including Ashtead, Chessington, Cobham, Croydon, Dorking, Esher, New Malden, Redhill, Reigate, Surbiton, Tadworth and Wimbledon. This page discusses the skip sizes we have available, and gives you some basic information on the amount of waste each one can hold.
Our 4-yard skip is suitable for domestic and commercial use with low waste volumes. This unit is compact, convenient and able to hold the equivalent of 60 bin bags or around 18 full wheelbarrow loads. Also suitable for large objects such as domestic appliances or furniture.
Our 6-yard skip is suitable for intermediate-sized domestic and commercial projects. This unit has a capacity equivalent to 90 bin bags or around 27 wheelbarrow loads of waste. This size of skip is especially popular with builders, plumbers and tradesmen in our local area.
Our 8-yard unit is particularly suited to medium-sized commercial and smaller industrial projects but is still a compact design with a capacity of 120 bin bags or 31 wheelbarrow loads – enough to deal with the majority of waste disposal projects our clients undertake.
The larger 10-yard skip (or midi skip) handles all bulk waste requirements and delivers a capacity equivalent to 150 bin bags. This skip is ideal for the clearance of light, bulky waste such as packaging, household waste, garden waste and large-sized furniture items.
For large-scale domestic and medium-sized commercial projects with multiple types and sizes of waste, our high-volume 12-yard skips accommodate bulk materials perfectly and have a capacity of 180 bin bags. This is the largest size of traditional skip we supply.
20 YARD or 40 YARD
20 yard holds around 220 bin bags of waste
40 yard hold around 440 bin bags of waste
Please note that Epsom Skip Hire also supplies roll-on/roll-off containers for those who have heavier waste removal requirements. We deliver skips and containers to all locations in Epsom, Kingston, Leatherhead, Sutton, Weybridge and the surrounding areas on a daily basis. Should you not have sufficient space to accommodate one of our skips but have room at the roadside where we can position a unit, please let us know. We regularly deal with local authorities in South London, Surrey and the South East to obtain the relevant permit.
