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 6 cube skip is a great fit. It can handle around two Venter trailers of rubbish.

For commercial clients with light industrial waste, the 6 cube 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 8 Cube skip. It is 2 cubes bigger then the 6 Cube skip, making it perfect for handling large-scale waste.

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

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.

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.
