Known as a ‘builders skip’, it can be used for a wide range of jobs and is most often seen on residential streets for home refurbishment projects. This skip is used in construction and on domestic jobs.
Being the same height as a grand piano, this skip is great for projects that have a medium volume of waste.
This skip can hold approximately 65 – 75 bin bags and is available with a drop down door.
