What Can I fit in The Skip ?

Another way that we can help you relate skip sizes to your needs is the rough number of black plastic bin bags that typically fit into them.

The table below gives you the overall dimensions of each size of skip, the end heights (how high you will have to lift your waste to put it in) as well as the rough number of domestic dustbin bags that each size of skip will hold.
