Here at R Collard, we are proud to offer a diverse range of skip sizes and styles to suit domestic and commercial properties across the UK. 3-yard skips are one of the most popular kinds of skips for relatively small amounts of waste, or to deal with domestic clear outs and spring cleaning. 3 yard skips, often called mini skips, are a popular size of skip for use in domestic and smaller commercial clearance.
3-yard skips can hold approximately 3 tonnes of waste. As such, they are perfect for smaller clearance projects and dealing with household waste. Thanks to their compact size, they are often positioned in properties where space or access for larger skips is a concern.
Here at R Collard, we can provide a full range of skip sizes and styles to suit your needs. 3-yard mini skips are a great way to deal with most kinds of household waste. They can also be used to deal with garden waste, including some types of aggregates. They are a great option for any small clear-out project, or where space is limited for your property. For example, if you can’t get permission to place your skip on public land, 3-yard skips can often be squeezed onto personal property.
Collard is proud to have one of the largest and most comprehensive stock and range of skips and roro’s in the South of England, ranging from 4 to 40 yards. The most popular skips for domestic customers range from 4yd to 8yd.
Other Skips & RoRo's
We also offer a range of larger Roll-On/Roll-Off skips from 15yd to 40yd, enclosed skips and crane tested skips, available to hire.
If you require your skip to be placed on public land or the public highway, you will need a chargeable local authority licence. These can be ordered online with your skip or by phoning us.

What Kinds of Waste Can’t Go Into 3 Yard Skips?
There are several kinds of waste types and materials which can’t be disposed of in 3-yard skips. Thanks to their compact sizes, 3-yard skips can often be used to deal with certain aggregates without causing the waste container to become too heavy for safe lifting and disposal.
Some of the waste types which aren’t suitable for disposal in 3 yard skips include:
- Waste Electrical Equipment & Electronics (WEEE).
- Hazardous Materials (Including Asbestos & Plasterboard).
- Gas Cylinders.
Do I Need a Permit to Hire a 3 Yard Skip?
As with any other kind of skip, you only need a permit if your skip will be placed on public land. If your skip isn’t blocking a public pathway or public access, you don’t need to apply for a permit or licence. In most cases, 3 yard skips are small enough to comfortably fit on your property, so permits are not required.
Even if, for whatever reason, you do require a permit, we are here for you. The R Collard team can work with you to apply for and get the licence / permit you need.
