Hiring a Skip During Your Garden Project


One of the main advantages of hiring a skip when carrying out a garden project is that you can dispose of several materials and we will arrange for the safe disposal of the waste that is generated during your project. You can generate a surprising amount of different waste including different materials. There are a number of garden projects that can benefit from skip hire which will save you time and energy when having to dispose of all of the materials. The separation of all materials is also done for you. Doing this at the dump can mean multiple lengthy trips in the car.


  • Home cleanouts are where you are clearing out your home. Garden cleanouts can also generate a large amount of waste such as soil, hardcore, wood and general waste.

  • Tree and shrub maintenance, pruning or the removal of shrubs or trees can generate waste that needs to be disposed of. This type of waste can also damage or make a car’s interior dirty if transported in your car.

  • Patio and decking – these projects may involve ripping out old decking or patio stones and replacing them. This can generate a large amount of soil, stone and wood waste where a skip will massively help reduce waste around your garden.

  • Demolition of garden features or sheds – this is a project in which ACMs or asbestos-containing materials may be present as well as a wide range of different types of waste. Hiring a skip makes removal simple during demolition projects.

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.
