Is an 8 yard skip the right size for me?
An 8 yard skip is larger than the more common 6 yard ‘builders’ skip and its approximate measurements are as follows:
- LENGTH – 340cm
- WIDTH – 179cm
- HEIGHT – 126cm
- VOLUME IN M2 – 6.12M
With regards to the volume of waste an 8 yard skip can hold this is dependent on the type and size of the waste being placed in it, however for guidance we estimate it could hold the equivalent of 80 filled black bin bags.
If you are unsure which skip size will work for you, then do not hesitate to get in contact with our team of experienced sales advisors who will gladly advise you on which of the AMS waste containers is best for your project.
