Roll On Roll Off Skips: What Can They be Used for?

If you’re launching a construction or demolition project, or a commercial site that needs to dispose of large bulky waste, a standard skip may not be your best option. Here at Woodford Recycling we are able to supply you with a large Roll On Roll Off container ideal for large volumes of waste. This is an effective, efficient way to remove your waste, saving you time and, more importantly, money.

What are Roll On Roll Off skips?

RoRo (Roll On Roll Off) skips are the largest skips available for hire in the UK, and come in two sizes of 20 or 35 cubic yards. One cubic yard roughly equals 10 bin bags of waste, so this means that Ro/Ro skips can hold up to 200 – 350 bin bags worth of waste at a time. The 20 cubic yard Ro/Ro has low sides ideal for loading by hand, whereas the 40 yard Ro/Ro is high sided. Both containers have rear opening doors for ease of loading.
