Skip bins were invented a century ago
The first modern day skip bin made its appearance in the 1920’s. The bins which resembled the coal mine skips were used in Southport, England to transport waste which eventually led to the invention of the modern skip bin business model. Skip bins took off in the property boom of the 1960s. They were incorporated into the waste management systems to cope with the growing populations. Skip bin hire companies are now very much part of modern day waste removal systems and play an important role in transporting the waste we generate to landfills, incinerators, and recycling plants. Without skip bins we would have no efficient method to remove the ever increasing waste modern society produces.
