Helpful information for filling your skip bag


  • Place your bag in the correct position before you start to fill it up. You’ll quickly find out how difficult it is to move once it is filled with heavy waste!
  • Break down large items to maximise space
  • Put in dirt/soil first, so it bulks out the bag at the bottom
  • Keep pulling up the sides of the bag as you go, it will create more space!
