2 Yard Skip Hire in Essex

2 yard skips, or mini skips as they’re sometimes called, are ideal for getting rid of small amounts of waste. They’re often used for home improvement projects such as kitchen and bathroom renovations and garden or garage clearances. However, they can also be used as a secondary skip on commercial sites.

At Reds Skip Hire, we offer 2 yard skip hire in Essex, with our team able to deliver skips to sites throughout the region. We can offer same-day delivery in many cases, allowing you to get started on your project as quickly as possible.


What are the dimensions of a 2 yard skip?

The dimensions of a 2 yard skip often vary between suppliers, however, they are usually 5ft long, 4ft wide and 3ft high. Whilst it’s the smallest skip size we offer, many people find it large enough for domestic jobs such as minor renovation works and rubbish clearances. 2 yard skips can hold around 25 bin bags of rubbish. If you think your project might produce more rubbish than this, it may be advisable to opt for a larger skip such as a 4 yard or 6 yard skip. This will reduce the risk of you overfilling the skip and incurring additional costs.

What can I put in a 2 yard skip?

The list of items you can put into a 2 yard skip is almost endless, which is one of the reasons why so many people hire them for their projects. They can be used to get rid of household waste, old furniture, plastic, metal, wood, rubble, and much more. There are some items that you can’t dispose of in a 2 yard skip, including asbestos, gas cylinders, medical waste, tyres, electrical items, paint and fuel. If you’re not sure what you can and can’t put into your skip, our team will be happy to advise you.
