    Is it generally acceptable to fill a 6tonne skip with soil and rubble? I don't want to find out its too heavy when the come to fetch it. IMAG0321.jpg IMAG0319.jpg

    Generally, yes.

    If in doubt, ring (01332) 365 544 and ask!

    The skip company normally ask what you intend to fill it with?

    Actually when I've called my local skip supplier, I tell him what I'm putting in it and it alters the price due to where he takes it and if it can be 'reused' or just landfill, or whatever the heck they do with it :mrgreen:

    Hope you didn't put your car in the garage:love:

    Why did they put the lowest end where you cant use it for loading?

    I would be levering it down the slope before filling it!

    Odd to call it a 6 tonne as they used to call it 6 yard or whatever.

    They certainly seem able to lift it when piled full of broken concrete!

  16. How you fill a skip also depends on how much you are prepared to 'bung' the driver ;)
