These skips should be used for large volumes of bulky waste such as that from building or construction sites.
Rubble, soil and bricks are not to be used in this size of skip, due to the container being too heavy when it comes to emptying.
This style of skip offers huge capacity, so is more suited to an environment where there is guaranteed to be a huge amount of waste.

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!
