Skip size guide

The first step when hiring a skip is choosing which skip size you need. From small skips for household waste to RORO containers for professional construction, our guide will help you hire the right skip for the job.

Mick George Skips provides an unmatched range of skip sizes and availability, for any waste disposal job.

Skips sizes are traditionally referred to in cubic yards e.g. "4 yards", "16 yards" etc. but don't worry, we list metric measurements too.
