Skip bins are metal containers used to hold oddments decommissioned from homes, offices, and industries in volumes. Initially, these containers were introduced in models of waste paper baskets that were modified and bettered into bins and then dumpsters that are now posted outside domestic premises for weekly collection and disposal of wastes. Presently, skips are referred to those metal containers that are open-topped and carried at the back of trucks for transporting junk from collection points to disposal sites. Since the government of the country started laying inordinate stress on proper disposal systems, these carriers are getting manufactured in multiple models and sizes to suffice the changing requirements.
Here’s a look at the available kinds of bins that you can hire for waste disposal:
Mini Skips for Household Garbage
This is the smallest sized bin available in the stores, marketed as mini skip, home skip, domestic skip, gardening skip, etc. With an approximate dimension of 4ftx2.5ftx3ft, these containers are perfect carriers of bin bags of big size over 25 in the count, at a time. They are designed to weekly carry wastes generated from domestic properties. Some of them use the item to dispose of garden wastes like grass rolls, raked leaves, mowed grass, weeds, loose clay, etc.
Mid-Sized Skips for Commercial Wastes
These containers are sized 4 cubic yards and are double the capacity of the mini versions. Built to carry a bulk of wastes from offices and industries, these units are usually used to collect demolished stuff like computer junks, metal trash, saw shavings, ice chunks, concrete pieces, liquid wastes, etc. that are heavy and manually irremovable. As they are designed to carry weighty garbage, the units are fitted with a drop door at the bottom, coupled with sloping sides meant to ease unloading.
Jumbo Skips for Industrial for Clearance
Last but not least, these 8 cubic yard containers are meant to carry commodities from homes and offices for clearance. Purposed for big projects, the units look different from the mini and mid-sized repositories because of their enhanced capacity. Often used by movers to relocate goods from one place to another, the giant size of the bins eliminates the necessity of partial transfer. Aside, they are also used to carry recyclable items in an environment-friendly manner.
The carriers are also classified on the basis of their design and purpose. Those meant to carry builder’s wastes are called builders’ skips, while others made of tough ferrous materials are meant for hazardous materials.
