What is a 40 yard skip most suitable for?
A 40 yard skip tends to be the largest skip available. Because of their enormous size, it is important to plan clear entry routes to your site and provide ample room to place the skip. Due to their size, 40 yard skips are almost exclusively used by commercial customers. A common arrangement is to supplement the skip with a ‘Man and Van’ service to collect any waste that cannot be placed in the skip. This is because construction sites can often produce hazardous of difficult to deal with waste that you cant put in a 40 yard skip.
