iitDo you need to hire a small skip to get rid of domestic waste? If so, a midi skip is likely to be a good solution. A midi skip can be used for various rubbish removal projects at home, ranging from clearing out garages and attics to renovating kitchens and bathrooms. If you’re still wondering what is a midi skip and why you might need one, keep reading.
How big is a midi skip?
A midi skip is one of the smaller variants of skips, measuring 4 cubic yards. With the capacity for around 40 bags of rubbish, they are ideal for many domestic rubbish removal projects. This includes house or garden clearances or small renovation jobs. Their small size means they’re easier to handle and store. They can easily fit on most private driveways. This removes the need for a skip hire permit, which would be required if they were placed on a public road or pavement. Midi skips are relatively cheap to hire too, making them a cost-effective choice.
At Ward Bros, we also offer a midi+ skip. This skip is slightly larger than a standard midi skip, measuring 6 cubic yards. Midi+ skips can hold around 60 bags of rubbish, making them a better option for domestic projects which are likely to generate more waste. If you’re not sure whether to opt for a midi or midi+ skip, talk to our team. We will be happy to advise you on which is best for your needs.
What can a midi skip be used for?
A midi skip is well suited to a wide range of rubbish removal projects. Although they can be used for small commercial jobs, they’re most commonly used domestically. They are ideal for DIY or home renovation work such as kitchen and bathroom refits. They’re also a good choice for garden, garage and attic clear-outs. If you’re carrying out any of these projects and expect to create a large amount of waste, a midi skip could be a good option.
What can I put in it?
One of the best things about hiring one is that you can put almost anything into it. This makes it ideal for most types of projects. Some examples of materials and items you can put into a midi skip are paper, cardboard, wood, metals, carpet, clothes, tiles, bricks and garden waste. Keep in mind that there are things you can’t put into a midi skip or any skip for that matter. These include asbestos, electrical items, chemicals, tyres, large batteries, gas cylinders and plasterboard. Most of these items can be left at a household waste recycling centre. For advice on how to dispose of items that can’t be placed in a skip, talk to our team. We can provide advice on disposing of them legally and safely.
Do I need a permit for a midi skip?
As with all skips, you won’t need a permit if you’re going to place one on your private land such as your driveway or garden. However, if you plan on putting on a public road, you will need to obtain a permit. You will need to obtain this from your local council. At Ward Bros, we’re more than happy to do this for you as part of our service. Keep in mind that you may also need to put safety lights or marking on or around your midi skip. This could include reflective markings, nighttime safety lamps and traffic cones.
How much is a midi skip?
The price you’ll pay to hire a midi skip will vary depending on a number of factors, including where you live, how long you need it for, and whether or not you need a permit.
