What is a 16 skip most suitable for?

16 yard skips are more commonly used in commercial settings. There are only a few cases where you may want this skip in a domestic setting, such as clearing up after renovating an entire home. Keep in mind a 16 yard skip’s weight limit, it’s easy with a large skip like this to forget this important point. An overfilled skip will be dangerous to load onto a truck and will incur an additional charge. Avoid putting dense heavy waste in this skip as they are more suited for larger amounts of light waste. Explore our range of skips that include 6 yard, 10 yard, 40 yard and more.
