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
- 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.
