In general, any occasion requiring the immediate disposal of a large amount of waste can benefit from a skip bin. Skip bins are available in several different sizes depending on the amount of garbage to be disposed.

  • Regular waste disposal purposes for large industries.
  • Construction sites
  • Scrap metal recycling
  • Individual households might also require a skip bin during a renovation or reconstruction phase to handle construction waste, when moving out, or when doing major landscaping.

Industries and businesses generating larger amounts of waste often require larger skip bins. The difference between a wheelie bin and a skip bin is that a wheelie bin is emptied into a larger truck that will collect from multiple sites, whereas a skip bin is directly taken to the transfer station or landfill site in a special truck. An empty skip bin will be often be needed and left to replace the full bin.

 

Skip bins are significantly larger than regular domestic garbage containers and can be used for the disposal of general waste and discarded materials. Because of their larger size, skips are typically used by industrial companies, restaurants, retail stores, and large apartments. Individual households may also use these larger containers for occasions such as renovations, construction, or any other event that requires enormous amounts of rubbish to be disposed of.

An important thing to remember is that regular skip bins cannot be used for asbestos disposal. Separate asbestos removal skip bins must be used: the bins must be double-lined with thick plastic (at least 200 micron thickness) and sealed using quality duct tape. Other wastes should not be mixed with the asbestos waste.
