Skip size.

    I need to hire a skip to take away some old solid 9 " blocks. There's about 180 in total.

    The skip will be loaded with a small dumper so just randomly thrown in.

    My question is what size skip will I need. I think a standard builders skip is six cubic yards. Will I need more than one.

    Look at it this way iirc there are 44 blocks in a bail of blocks. So you need room for 4 and a half bails plus some space for the randomness.

    My guess unless there is a lot of other rubble they should easily fit.

    Wake me up when it's all over.
