Skip Sizes

Often, you’ll find that understanding the different skip sizes we offer at Skip Hire Cape Town in Cape Town is essential for choosing the right solution for your waste removal needs.

If you’re dealing with residential waste, like garden leftovers, a mini skip is a great fit. It can handle around two Venter trailers of rubbish.

For commercial clients with light industrial waste, the midi skip is ideal, capable of holding about 30 municipal bins worth of trash.

However, if you’re on a construction site with considerable waste, you’ll want the maxi skip. It’s almost double the size of the midi skip, making it perfect for handling large-scale waste.

Understanding these options ensures you get the most cost-effective, efficient solution for your needs.


When you’re faced with an overwhelming amount of residential waste, hiring a skip from Skip Hire Cape Town in Cape Town is your best bet. Our residential skip rentals are designed to make waste management a breeze. Whether you’re doing some spring cleaning, undergoing a home renovation, or just have general waste that your local municipality can’t handle, we’ve got you covered.

We drop the skip off at your home, you fill it up, and then we collect it. It’s that simple. No more worrying about how to dispose of all your waste.

Here are the key action points for someone renting a skip bin in Cape Town

  • Segregate your waste properly into general, recyclable and hazardous waste before putting it into the skip. This is required by law.
  • Do not put hazardous waste like batteries, light bulbs, paint tins etc into a general waste skip. These need to go into separate hazardous waste skips.
  • Make sure any recyclable waste like paper, plastic, glass and cans are put into the correct recycling skip bin.
  • Do not overfill the skip bin beyond the top edge. You can be fined for this.
  • Do not dump waste illegally on the street, this can lead to prosecution.
  • Keep the area around the skip bin tidy and clear of obstructions.


Eco-Friendly Waste Management Solutions 

As a skip hire company in Cape Town, we can provide eco-friendly waste management solutions for our clients by ensuring proper sorting, recycling, and disposal of waste materials.


When clients rent a skip from our company, they fill it with various types of waste, such as general waste, builders rubble, wood, metal, and electronics. Once the skip is full, our team collects it and transports it to a material recovery facility (MRF) for sorting and processing.


At the MRF, waste materials are sorted into different categories, such as paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, and metal. This is done using a combination of manual labor and automated machinery, including conveyor belts, screens, magnets, and optical sorters.


Once sorted, the materials are processed to be used in the manufacturing of new products. For example, paper and cardboard are pulped and turned into new paper products, while glass is crushed and melted to create new glass items. Metals are melted and reformed into new metal products, and plastics are cleaned, shredded, and melted to create new plastic items.

Recycling and Landfill Reduction

By properly sorting and recycling materials, our skip hire company can help conserve natural resources, reduce pollution, and support a circular economy.

This contributes to the environmental benefits of recycling, such as reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators, conserving natural resources, and reducing pollution from the extraction and processing of raw materials.

Compliance with Regulations

As a skip hire company, it’s essential to comply with local waste management regulations and guidelines. This includes ensuring that hazardous materials are disposed of safely and that waste is transported to licensed facilities for recycling or disposal.

By offering eco-friendly waste management solutions, our skip hire company can help clients in Cape Town reduce their environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable use of resources. Proper sorting and recycling of materials not only benefit the environment but also create jobs, generate revenue, and save energy compared to producing new materials from raw resources.

SHCT is a  proud member of the Institute of Waste Management Southern African (IWMSA) and E-Waste Association of South Africa (EWASA).
