1. Marrel Skip Bins

Marrel skip bins are probably the most common of skip bin type. These skips have tall sides and they are generally more difficult to load as compared to other skip bin types. Typically, marrel skips range in size from 1.5m³ and go up to as big as 17m³.

2. Hook lift Skip Bins

Hook lift skip bins, also known as walk-in skip bins are another common type of skip bin. They are usually much longer in length than marrel skips and feature lower sides. Their most distinctive feature is a rear door which can be swung open. Hook lift skips offer walk-in access right into the skip, making the loading process incredibly easy.

3. Mobile Skip Bins

Mobile skip bins are a new type of skip bin and are smaller than both marrel skips and hook lift skips. They are also often referred to as a “mini skip bin”. They look similar to front lift bins which are seen in industrial settings. Mobile skip bins are transported with the help of small trailers and can be placed on roads without a permit. The typical size ranges from 3m³ to 6m³.

4. Skip Bags

Skip bags are quite different from other types of skip bin. Unlike skip bins, which you hire only once, skip bags are available for long-term hire: they are also a hessian bag and not a solid steel bin structure. When you order a skip bag, it will be delivered to you and waste will be removed on a periodic basis. The skip bag will remain at your location for as long as you want to.
