What is a skip or skip bin?


A skip or skip bin is an open design bin often used at construction and renovation sites. The skips are not emptied on site but are usually replaced by an emptied one, with the full bin taken to the disposal point for separation and potential recycling. A skip ranges from about 3m³ to about 15m³, and are made of steel making them hard to break. Skips are often placed at the front of construction sites, which makes disposing of waste easy for tradesman and labourers.
