12 Yard Skip

12 Yard Skips available for Hire from PAL Hire are also known as a maxi skip. The 12 Yard Skip is most popular within the industrial, trades and commercial sectors, providing ample waste disposal capability for most projects. Our trade and commercial waste customers benefit from regular skip exchanges – making sure that waste is managed correctly.

12 Yard Skips can also be utilised for very large domestic renovation projects. Do note that these bins can also fit large quantities of wood, plastic and metal.

These skips are very popular for waste management at factories and warehouses as they carry packaging waste.

We offer a fast turnaround and can hire out to anywhere in the UK.

This skip hire can easily accommodate up to 130 bags of your average bin bags worth of waste.

Overview

12 Yard Skips are used for major, large projects and can house a large amount of bulky waste.

Although the skip has high sides to contain a large amount of bulky waste, it is still easy to access.

It can contain around 240 bin bags and it most suited to metal, wood, plastics and packaging.

Many councils won’t allow this size of skip to be on the road, so private land is required.

Things to consider

Things to consider

  • If you are unsure of what size to go for, it is generally a better idea to go for the larger size as it is very dangerous to overload a skip and you will always find extra waste to go into it!
  • If you are placing your skip on the road, you may need a permit to do so. Contact your local council for more information.
  • Our team of dedicated specialists can arrange any amount of skips from our vast range of suppliers. Whether it is for a construction site or a small domestic project, we have the solution for you.
