Skip Bag Size Guide

Lets see if we can help you choose the right sized skip bag

We understand that trying to estimate which size skip bag you’ll need can be a bit overwhelming. The risk of ordering a skip bag too small is that you’ll need to hire a second one.

Let's set a baseline first

YES! A skip bag is cheaper than a similar-sized steel skip, so it's a good alternative if you're on a budget and the ideal solution if you want to take your time filling it up. Kollect skip bags start as little as just €50 and if you want to buy just the bag and pay for collection that's no problem either!
With Kollect we give you two options. Option one is buy just the bag and pay the collection later. Option 2 is to pay for the skip bag delivery and skip bag collection together upfront. That way you can contact us when you are ready and you have already paid.
It depends on the size of the skip bag, for example our biggest Skip Bag can hold up to 1.5 tonnes of rubble, brick or soil. However we generally suggest skip hire for anything bigger than that.
