Scaling your waste management for Bigger jobs, & projects...

An 8 yard skip is a container that is commonly used for commercial and industrial waste disposal. The 8 Yard unit is larger than a standard household skip and is typically used for large construction projects, demolitions, and other types of large-scale waste disposal. 

The 8 yard skip has a capacity of about 6 cubic meters, meaning it can hold a large amount of debris, including wood, concrete, brick, and other heavy materials, amounting to around 60-80 standard bin bags.  

Our 8 Yard skips are also commonly used for the collection of bulky waste such as furniture, household goods, and other non-hazardous materials.
