How much does an 8 yard skip hold?

An 8 yard skip typically holds around 60-80 bin bags, making it well suited to projects that produce large quantities of waste. The dimensions of this skip vary between suppliers, however, they’re usually around 12ft (3.66m) long, 6ft (1.83m) wide and 4.5ft (1.37m) high. Since an 8 yard skip is so bulky, you may need to place it on a public road. If so, you’ll need a skip permit, which can be obtained from your local council. We can acquire this for you as part of our service.

When choosing a size skip for your project, make sure it’s large enough to accommodate the waste you want to dispose of. If it’s too small, you risk overfilling it. This isn’t just unsafe but it may also mean that you incur extra costs as a result. It’s also best to opt for a larger skip than you think you might need to avoid this problem.
