Tipping Skips


Ridgeway Manufacturing has a long history of designing and building bespoke tipping skips for a variety of manufacturing businesses, from construction and manufacturing, through to the medical and chemical industries.


A tipping skips is a forklift attachment which allows you to transport waste out of the facility to a waste compactor or a larger skip, more efficiently and more safely than you would trying to remove waste by hand.

  • A robust 5mm thick base made of pressed ste el.
  • The choice of either 3mm or 5mm thick reinforced sides.
  • One-way entry for waste with a heavy-duty handle and catch mechanism.
  • Fitted with safety chains for safer transportation and unloading of your tipping skip
  • CE Marked and Certified
  • Available in different sizes (up to 3.00 YD (2.40 CUM))
  • Full operating instructions included

We have a variety of optional extras available for your tipping skip, such as polyurethane castors and colour coding, to help meet your requirements. To ensure your tipping skips works for you, our design team will visit you on-site to evaluate your needs and we feel this personal customer service, along with our investment in the very latest technologies and processes, such as SOLIDWORKS in our CAD department, helps us to design the right solution for you.


We manufacture all of our products in house at our modern manufacturing facility right in the heart of the West Midlands so you can be sure the product you receive is a high-quality, UK product crafted to your requirements. Our facility also gives us very flexible capabilities, from bespoke one-off designs or prototypes specific, through to large scale production runs.
