A tarpulin sheet would be more than sufficient, you can pick these up at most hardware stores, screwfix, toolstation or B&Q. Place over the skip and place something heavy on top to keep it secure.

You will need an 8ft x 5ft mesh net with elasticated bungee edge to attach to skips luggs, net world sports do good ones 👍

You can used a tarpaulin or heavy duty mesh.
Depending on size of skip.

Hi, it may have been easier to change the skip to a covered lockable skip, most suppliers have them.

You can use anything from Tarpaulin to mesh sheets the best place I would look for them is screwfix, Travis Perkins , tool station and even B&Q big typically they will be cheaper at trade places but other than that if you haven’t already ordered your skip yet request a lockable incased skip to stop fly tippers

Tarpaulin sheet and some bungee straps or rope to secure it
