Tipping Skips

Our range of heavy duty tipping skips and self-tipping forklift skips (also known as roll forward skips), allow you to transport waste material out of the facility to a waste compactor, in a more efficient and safe manner than removing it by hand, using a forklift truck.

Our range is manufactured in the UK and fully tested to meet the highest UK & EU regulations. Ridgeway Manufacturing has a long history of designing and building bespoke roll forward tipping bins for a variety of industries, from construction and manufacturing to the medical and chemical industries. View our range below:



A Lowlyne roll forward skip is perfect for when outfalls are very low such as conveyor or scrap exists underneath machinery.

0.5 Yard

Ideal for confined spaces and can handle loads up to 1 tonne. 

0.75 Yard

Multi-purpose and ideal for where space is at a premium – suitable for heavy or dense small parts, or lighter waste such as card, plastics, timber or paper. 

1 Yard

Similar to the 0.75 yard but slightly larger to allow for more waste to be collected. 

1.50 Yard

The 1.50 Yard is widely regarded as general purpose and is suitable for most types of waste streams.

2 Yard

The 2.00 yard is designed to handle the heaviest types of waste and can lift up to 5 tonnes, perfect for larger and more bulky items.

3 Yard

The largest tipping skip in our range to handle the heaviest types of waste. It's high capacity makes it ideal for scrap collection or other high volume waste streams.

Automatic Tipping Skip

An auto-tip mechanism may be the perfect choice to dispose of waste quickly and safely at height. They are ideal for use with Roll On Roll Off (RORO) containers.

Bespoke Solutions

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


Our heavy duty forklift tipping skips remove rubbish and waste easily and safely, 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 to demonstrate compliance with environmental,
    health and safety regulations

  • 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

  • Galvanised finish

  • And much more


To ensure your tipping bin meets your exact requirements, our design team will visit you at your premises in order to evaluate your needs.

They can then suggest a variety of optional extras, including:


For easy manoeuvrability, 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 raised mesh height increase 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 Bins

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.

Why choose the Auto Tipping option “v” manually operated tipping skip?

All of our tipping skips are available in either standard manual tip or Auto Tip.

With the manual option the forklift truck operator will manually release the skip to enable it to tip and empty by pulling on the lever at the rear of the tipping skip. This is the most cost-effective option and is ideal when you are emptying the waste at low level or onto the ground.

The Auto Tip option is worth strong consideration on a number of counts. The operation of Auto Tip means that the operator does not leave the forklift truck during tipping which is a great benefit in terms of operator safety. A large amount of tipping skips is emptied into large RORO containers which are up to 2800mm high. The Auto Tip unit means that the operator has no need to attempt to climb on the RORO or the forklift to pull a release handle.

To operate the Auto Tipping unit the operator simply raises the mast high enough to clear the waste container and then lowers the tipping skip down meaning the auto release bar will activate the tipping mechanism and the load will discharge itself. When the unit is empty it is returned to the ground the lock will re-engage making the tipping skip ready to use again. All of this operation is carried out whilst the operator remains safely in the forklift truck.

Auto Tip units need to be mounted on steel feet or castors to ensure the auto tipping mechanism is clear of the ground. This raises the height of tipping skips by between 120mm and 190mm.
