Skip Specifications

O’Brien offer a wide range of skip sizes, depending on your needs. Whatever size you hire, we recommend that you consider any access restrictions and take any steps to protect the area where the skip is being placed in order to avoid any damage.


If the skip is left on a public highway overnight you must fit safety lights to comply with Health & Safety legislation. Bespoke, secure skip lights can be provided at a small additional cost.


8 Yard Skips

These skips are ideal for DIY, home and garden enthusiasts, house clearance and commercial small works projects and are usually delivered on smaller vehicles which can access most domestic sized driveways.

12, 14 and 16 Yard Skips

The 12, 14 and 16 Yard skips are ideally suited for shop-fitting and refurbishment projects which produce large amounts of light waste types such as timber, flooring, plasterboard, plastics and packaging. The 12 and 14 Yard enclosed skips are perfect for safe and secure storage of waste at high risk or in vulnerable storage areas.

20 and 40 Yard Roll on Roll Off Skips

We also offer 20 and 40 Yard roll on roll off skip hire. Roll on roll off skips are the largest capacity containers, which are ideal for larger scale shop-fitting and construction projects where large volumes of light or heavy mixed bulky waste types are being disposed of.
