If you’re planning on having a small clean up then our 2-ton skip will be perfect for you. This skip is suitable for small DIY jobs, room or shed clearances or any sort of tidying up that includes small items and objects. Fitting around 25 – 35 full black bin bags, a 2-ton skip is ideal for when you do your general spring cleaning.
Furniture might not fit in this skip, and we highly recommend you contact us and include a few details of what you’re hoping to throw away so we can guide you towards the right size.
2-ton skips are considered as mini skips, they take up a small amount of space and can hold around 2 tons of weight. Because skips can’t be filled above the rim, our 2-ton skip is better off for smaller amounts of waste. They are mainly used for garden waste, and general rubbish you come across in your home on a day to day basis.
If you’re moving house and plan on having a clear out then this skip could be for you. A mixture of waste can be included in the skip, however, by law, you are prohibited to place tires, batteries, liquids, chemicals, gas bottles, or other prescribed or listed wastes. We recommend you contact the council if you’re looking to get rid of any of the above items.
Remember, 2-ton skips are only suitable for small items. Anything bulky will not fit, and ideally, it’s general waste such as household or garden rubbish.
Having a rough idea of how much you plan on throwing out before you order a skip is the best way to select the right sized skip, however, if you’re living in a small home and know your overall amount of rubbish will be nothing of the extraordinary size, then yes this skip will serve you well.
For more information and a better idea of what you can throw out, and how much waste you’ll be able to get in, contact us today for knowledgeable and honest advice.

As you may know, by law there is a limit a skip can hold. Depending on the size of the skip, you may not be able to get everything you want in it due to the filling up limit. Always seek advice from us if you’re not sure.
Being a licensed company by the Environmental Agency, we strictly adhere to Government procedures regarding waste transfer, meaning we will let you know how much you can put in before it’s considered ‘overflowing’.
For clients that have limited space on their property for a skip, we can provide you with a DMBC Council Skip Permit. This is needed for those that are looking at having their skip located in a public area such as a highway or pavement. The permit can be arranged by us on your behalf at a small permit cost of £20.00 for a maximum of 7 days.
