What Happens If Your Skip Bag Is Too Full? & Other FAQs

Skip bags are a great alternative to skips for smaller projects. Whether that’s a renovation or clear out, you’d be surprised at the amount these containers can hold! They are made from durable, waterproof woven material, so you can trust it to carry your waste efficiently. You have quite a bit of time to fill these, so you can take your time to complete a project. Here are some frequently asked questions we’re answering about this service.

Are They Any Good?

Skip bags are a great alternative to the traditional containers. They can still hold quite a bit of weight and are very robust. They are more cost effective than having a whole metal container, so you can enjoy more affordable prices. Just fill it up and book your collection.

What Happens If It’s Too Full?

Just like the usual container hire, skip bags must be filled level. If they are overfilled it could actually impact the integrity of the material. Additionally, this poses safety risks for the transportation drivers. Whilst putting it on the vehicle and driving, waste could fall off and cause harm to road users. If it is overfilled, our vehicle may not be physically able to lift it up either. Ensure skip bags are filled level as directed, otherwise collection could be refused.

Where Can I Put Skip Bags?

Skip bags are flexible to move around as they are light weight. When you choose to fill the container, you can pick where you’d like it on your property. They’re only as heavy as the items you put in there. Commonly, traditional skips are put on driveways to avoid damaging the garden. When it’s time for collection, they need to be close to the road for convenience to the driver. Throughout your hire period, you could move it around when collecting rubbish whilst it stays light, and move it to its final location before adding any of the heavy stuff.

What Can Go In Skip Bags?

Skip bags can carry quite the load, so don’t worry! The largest one we offer can hold up to 1.5 tonnes. It can hold an entire kitchen rip-out, which is quite a lot. These containers can accommodate cookers, washing machines, furniture, heavy rubble, brick, tiles, and the list goes on. Don’t be shy, as they can carry the weight of a Ford Focus.
