When it comes to domestic skip hire in Bolton, one of the key factors you’ll need to consider is the size of skip you’re going to need.
With such a wide range of skip sizes available for hire, it can sometimes be tricky to figure out the size that’s right for the quantity of waste you’re disposing of.
If you choose a skip size that’s too small, you may be faced with the prospect of hiring an additional skip to hold the extra waste. On the other hand, hiring a skip that’s too large for your needs will incur unnecessary expense.

How are skip sizes measured?
Skip sizes are measured in cubic yards, with companies providing skip hire in Bolton offering domestic skip sizes from 2 yards through to 8 yards.
Smaller domestic projects may only need a 2 yard skip, whereas major renovation works are likely to require an 8 yard skip. Here’s a little more information about the type of project that each skip size would be suitable for.
2 yard skip
Otherwise known as a ‘mini skip’, the 2 yard skip is ideal for many smaller projects. It can accommodate around 20 bin bags full of waste, and is perfect if you’re planning a spot of DIY or just tidying up your garden.
Many people looking for skip hire in Bolton use 2 yard skips for a spring clean, as they’re a good size for most shed or loft clear-outs. They can also accommodate most children’s toys, so are a great option if you’re having a sort through the nursery.
4 yard skip
The 4 yard skip is the most common size that customers require when looking for skip hire in Bolton.
A 4 yard skip can hold around 40 bin bags of waste. This makes them an ideal choice for most bathroom or kitchen refits. A 4 yard skip is also probably the best option if you’re planning a major garden clearance that requires a lot of digging out.
8 yard skip
This is the largest size that most domestic customers need when looking for skip hire in Bolton.
Accommodating a whopping 80 bin bags of waste, an 8 yard skip is ideal if your home is undergoing major renovation works. 8 yard skips are great for various kinds of bulky waste including furniture, plasterboard, and packaging waste.
Don’t forget that there are some items that cannot be placed in domestic skips, such as hazardous waste. See Bolton Council’s website for how to dispose of this correctly.
