20 yard skip

20 Yard Skip Falkirk

This size of skip is a different type of model from smaller sizes and is known as a container skip or a roll-on roll-off skip (or RoRo), unlike the smaller chain-type skips these are usually hired only by commercial (or public sector) clients as they require a sizeable space for them to sit (due to their much larger footprint) and sufficient space to unload them (as they are rolled off the lorry rather than lifted).

A 20 yard RoRo skip’s main selling points to our Falkirk-based customers are its impressive volume so you can dispose of plenty of waste and the (compared to a 14yd maxi) relatively low sides which makes it easier for operatives to load – saving time and reducing the potential for injuries.

If your looking to hire a skip in Falkirk then visit our homepage or give us a call. 

What types of projects is it hired for?

This size of skip is primarily used by construction firms to dispose of general building and demolition waste on medium to large scale building projects.

Shopfitters also use this when stripping out or refitting larger retail or hospitality units to dispose of the existing fittings.

Commercial and light industrial clients also use this size for one-off or regular on-site waste removal, including the likes of old furniture, redundant equipment or (non-hazardous) waste generated by manufacturing.

Private householders with larger properties do occasionally hire this model to clear an entire house but please check with us that it can be dropped into the space you have available and please note that these skips cannot be placed on the road.

How much waste can it handle?

The equivalent of 200-210 ordinary black bin bags can be loaded into a 20-cubic-yard skip.

How big is it?

The following are the dimensions of a twenty-yard skip:

6.1m long x 2.4 wide x 1.4m high in metric (approximately)

20 feet in length, 8 feet width, and 4 feet 5 inches in height (approximately)

Can I put any kind of waste in there?

Heavy inert construction waste like stone, roofing materials, bricks, and concrete. It is often used for demolition waste. Green waste, such as tree clippings, soil, and plant materials, can also be accommodated in these skips. All kinds of non-hazardous commercial waste such as metal, plastic, cardboard and timber plus general household waste such as that arising from a house clearance or renovation e.g. furniture, cabinets, kitchen and bathroom fittings & fixtures.

What types of waste are prohibited?

Large amounts of carpet or electrical appliances should not be dumped in a general waste container skip since they both require specialised recycling e.g. fridge freezers must have their internal refrigerant gas removed professionally. Liquids and chemicals of any kind (including paints, oils and motor fuels).

Toxic materials, including asbestos-containing products and medical waste (such as syringes or blood tests), are also not accepted. If you have any doubts regarding acceptability of an item of waste, then please phone us and ask before disposing of it.

If you intend to dispose of large amounts of plasterboard then please discuss this with when hiring as this is a restricted item due to its release of potentially dangerous gases when exposed to moisture.

Is a council permit necessary?

The permit issue is not applicable as a 20 yard RoRo container skip CANNOT be placed on the road (councils do not allow it due to the size and weight) so hirers must have a private yard, large driveway or area of hard standing where is can be dropped safely (plus adequate access for our lorry).
