Tipping Skips

Our Heavy duty tipping skips and forklift self-tipping skips also known as roll forwards skips, allow you to transport skip waste material out of the facility to a waste compactor, in a more efficient and safe manner than trying to remove it by hand. Our Tipping skips are manufactured in the UK and meet the highest UK & EU regulations. Ridgeway Manufacturing has a long history of designing and building bespoke roll forwards skips for a variety of industries, from construction and manufacturing to the medical and chemical industries.

3 Yard Tipping Skip

Auto Tipping Skip

If you need to empty at a height then an auto-tip mechanism may be the perfect choice to dispose of waste quickly and safely – ideal for Roll On Roll Off (RORO) containers.

Bespoke Tipping Skip Solutions

We can also manufacture a variety of bespoke sizes if none of the standard sizes meet your requirements.


All of our skips remove rubbish and waste with ease and safety in mind and our heavy-duty designs work in the harshest of site conditions.

Features as standard include:


  • A robust 5mm thick base made of pressed steel

  • The choice of 3mm or 5mm thick reinforced sides

  • One-way entry for waste with a heavy-duty catch and handle mechanism.

  • CE Marked and Certified

  • Fitted with safety chains for safer transportation and unloading

  • Available in different sizes (up to 3.00 YD (2.40 CUM)

  • Full operating instructions included

  • And much more



To ensure your tipping skips meet your exact requirements, our design team will visit you at your premises in order to evaluate your needs for material handling.

They can then suggest a variety of optional extras to meet your needs, including:


For easy maneuverability, all of our skips can be fitted with castor wheels.


Where light waste is being moved from indoors to outdoors, folding steel lids can be fitted to prevent waste blowing away in transit.

Drain Taps

Drain taps and baffle plates are fitted to our tipping skips where the customer has a need to remove any fluids from the unit prior to discharging the waste.

Mesh Height Increase

For lightweight or bulky waste fitting a height increase to your tipping skip is the best way to increase capacity.

Extra Heavy Duty

Where the nature of your environment is particularly demanding, be that with heavy loads, large pieces of dense waste or excessive heat, you will need a heavy duty skip.

Fork Tunnels

In applications where heavy loads are being transported or the tipping skip is being emptied very frequently the addition of fork tunnels within the base can increase the durability and lifespan of the unit.

Stackable Tipping Skips

If floor space is an issue it is possible to add supports to the tipping skips to make them stackable.

Craneable Lifting Lugs

Within many manufacturing units it is likely that a crane will be used to move products around the plant.

Auto Lock Tipping Skips

Increase the operating speed of your tipping skip by included an auto locking mechanism to the base of the unit.

We feel customer service with a personal touch, along with significant investment in our modern manufacturing facility, is what sets us apart from other tipping skip suppliers. For example, we recently invested in SOLIDWORKS within our CAD department at our facility.
