Before you select your skip bin, please bear in mind that if you intend to use it for the removal of asbestos or other hazardous waste, you will need to speak to the staff at Skip Bin Finder before booking through Skip Bin Finder.

Not all suppliers accept hazardous waste and those that do have strict guidelines regarding the management of both the skip bin and the waste.

How do I know which size skip bin to order?

This is a common question and for that reason, we’ve created our failsafe guide.

You need a skip bin which has ample space to contain all of your waste, but also one which is not too large so you don’t spend more than necessary. Choosing the right size saves you time and money.

If you are in need of extra guidance, please get in touch with our friendly team at the Skip Bin Finder head office. We’re always happy to help.

The following guide shows the skip bin sizes stocked by our suppliers and which you can order through us.

*Please note* that sizes are not exact and there may be small variations in the skip bins supplied by individual suppliers.

*Please note* that not all skip bins are equipped with doors so please ask before ordering if you need doors
