The containers we know as skips first appeared on the streets of Ireland in the 60s. What prompted their sudden apparition was the growing problem of waste in the commercial and industrial sector. It was getting too expensive to send tipper wagons to places and wait for them to be hand loaded or loaded with shovels or grabs on sites. This was especially problematic with smaller sites, for example house renovations.
Nowadays it is hard to find a street in Dublin without a skip parked in some ones drive. How times have changed, we are now recycling more of our skip waste than ever before and by using the latest GPS systems for our delivery of skips and the collection of skips we are also helping lower our carbon foot print.
So Skip Hire has been a part of Irish culture for the last 50 years. You learn something new ever day.
