4 Yard Skip

In a straightforward, practical, and cost-effective manner, this 4-yard midi skip can be used to dispose of moderate volumes of household, construction, gardening, or non-hazardous commercial waste from house restorations, renovations, or DIY projects. The compact size makes it ideal for driveways, gardens, and other small spaces. A mini skip is also known as a midi skip.

Can it be used for what types of jobs?

A four-yard skip is frequently hired by DIY’ers, building trades, and gardening firms for projects such as bathroom renovations, kitchen replacements, and garden waste removal.

The service can also be hired by private individuals to clean out a room in their home in preparation for redecorating or repurposing (for example, converting a child’s room into a home office). Clients in the commercial sector use these services on-site to dispose of furniture, old stock, and to soft strip-out/renovate their buildings.

We have other sizes such as 2 yard skip, 4 yard skip, 6 yard skip, 8 yard skip.

Is it okay to put any kind of waste in there?

People can use these skips to throw away everything from general household waste (like paper, cardboard, and plastic) to green waste (like soil, plants, and tree waste) and construction waste (like stone and rubble) (please ask us if you intend to dispose of plasterboard however).


What types of waste cannot be disposed of?

You shouldn’t throw away paints, oils and liquids, tyres and batteries from cars and soiled nappies from mattresses. You should also not throw away carpet and electrical appliances in a general waste mini skip (e.g. fridge freezers which require to be degassed).

There should also be no asbestos-containing (or goods that are thought to be asbestos-containing) items that are dumped in a skip. Large amounts of electrical waste (e.g., light fittings) and medical waste are not allowed to be thrown away, and business clients should be aware of this fact. Please ask us if you have any questions about what you can put in the skip before you do.

Is a council permit necessary?

A midi skip is the perfect size to store items in a garage or driveway, garden or private yard. We recommend that it be placed off-road, away from public access, if possible, to avoid unauthorised dumping of your skip.

You will need a skip permit if you do not have access to private property and you want to place the skip on the road (public highway or other public land). This must be ordered and paid directly at your local government. The process can take between 14 and 30 days. You will be penalized if you don’t get the permit before the skip is removed. You should allow sufficient time for the skip’s removal before the permit expires.

Visit your local council website for more information about fees and other requirements to place a skip on the road.
