Using Domestic Skip Hire For Home Improvement

If you are looking to carry out some spring cleaning this year or carrying out a home renovation project then it’s a great time to think about using skip hire. Skip hire is great for home improvement for a number of reasons:


  • Hiring a skip is more convenient and can save time in the long run, especially if waste starts to pile up or there is more waste generated than you expect. We can then arrange for the collection of your skip so that you do not have to worry about transporting waste to the dump.

  • Skips come in various sizes so you can match this to your project. There are smaller skips for smaller renovation projects and large skips capable of handling waste from large renovation projects. We can also advise you on the specific skip sizes that you may need for your project.

  • Skip hire is flexible and works to your project requirements. Whether your project requires skip hire for a day or a couple of days to an extended period of time – we can support you and will collect your waste when your project is completed.


We are the leading providers of skip hire in Bristol and the surrounding areas. We offer a comprehensive skip-hire service for all home projects including projects for your home and your garden. If you are looking for skip hire then get in touch with a member of our team today or request a free quote through our website today.


Skip Hire is a Popular Choice for Home Improvement Projects


It’s not surprising that skip hire is a popular choice for home improvement projects. Skip hire allows you to keep your home tidy and allows you to arrange for the collection of waste generated during your project. We offer skip hire to deal with these common waste types:


  • Household clearance waste
  • Garden green waste
  • Construction & demolition waste
  • Varying wood grades
  • Hardcore
  • General skip waste
  • Asbestos removal
  • Non-hazardous & hazardous soil


Cost Effective Waste Removal


Having to transport waste away from your property whilst working on the project can be time-consuming, cost money and add stress to the overall project. Skip hire removes all this and is a highly cost-effective solution. You can easily deposit waste into your skip and you don’t have to worry about transporting waste away when it’s generated during your project.


What Waste May Be Generated During My Home Improvement Project


  • General household waste – the most likely form of waste generated – old materials, furniture, carpets – items such as these that need disposal.

  • ACMs or asbestos-containing materials – Asbestos is understandably concerning when in your home. Buildings built in or before 1990 may contain this historic insulating material. Prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres in the air can cause mesothelioma and lung cancer so it’s important not to disturb these materials.

  • Garden and wood waste may require a skip as it tends to be bulky or in different sizes.

  • Metal waste may be generated from breaking down objects containing metal or metal materials.

  • Electronic waste may be generated which should be disposed of utilising a specific recycling or waste processing centre.


We offer a wide range of different services as well as skip-hire that can help you during a home improvement project. Find out more on our website or speak with our team today.

Mini Skip

Mini skips are the smallest skips available on the market for hire and are ideal for small domestic projects like small garden clean-ups or small home renovations. They are compact and can easily fit in tight spaces, making them a popular choice for homeowners with limited space.

Builder’s Skip

Builder’s skips are a common choice for construction and renovation projects. They offer ample space for construction waste, including bricks, concrete, and timber. These skips are larger than mini skips but still manageable for most residential properties.

Large Skip

Large skips are designed for significant waste disposal needs, often found on construction sites. They are suitable for large-scale renovation projects, clearing out an entire house, or handling bulky items. These skips are quite spacious but may require more space for placement. 

Roll-on/Roll-off Skips (Ro-Ro)

Roll-on/roll-off skips, commonly known as Ro-Ro skips, are enormous containers primarily used for industrial and commercial purposes. They are ideal for handling substantial amounts of waste, such as large construction projects, factory cleanouts, and major demolition work. Ro-Ro skips are transported on and off-site using specialized vehicles. If you’re looking for a Ro-Ro skip, get in touch with Penny’s and we can point you in the right direction.

Open Skips

Open skips are the standard type of skips with no covering or lid. They are easy to load and are suitable for a wide range of waste materials. Open skips are commonly used for general household and construction waste and most Mini, Builder’s and Large skips are open.

Enclosed Skips

Enclosed skips are equipped with a cover or lid, which helps keep the waste secure and prevents unauthorized access. They are often used for disposing of confidential documents or when waste containment is crucial, such as in areas prone to wind or wildlife interference.

Mixed Skips

Mixed skips are designed for projects that involve various types of waste, including construction debris, household waste, and garden waste. These skips allow you to mix different waste materials, making them convenient for projects with diverse waste streams.

Hardcore Skip

Hardcore skips are specially designed for disposing of heavy construction materials like concrete, bricks, and hardcore rubble.

They are reinforced to withstand the weight and abrasiveness of such materials, making them the ideal choice for construction sites.

Inert Skip

Inert skips are intended for non-reactive waste materials like soil, sand, and clay. These skips are often used for landscaping and excavation projects, where the waste is not chemically reactive and can be safely reused or disposed of.

Choosing the right type of skip for your project is essential to ensure efficient waste management. Consider the size of the skip, the type of waste you’ll be disposing of, and any specific requirements, such as containment or accessibility.

By selecting the appropriate skip, you can streamline your waste disposal process and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
