A history of convenience

While the exact inventor of the skip remains unknown, the first documented use of a “skip” for rubbish dates back to 1922. These early versions were likely adaptations of existing metal containers, progressing from horse-drawn carts and manual waste removal.

Convenient solution

The concept quickly gained traction. Skips offered a convenient and centralised solution for accumulating large amounts of waste, particularly during construction or demolition projects. Over the following decades, the design evolved, incorporating features like increased durability, standardised sizes, and eventually, the now-iconic open-top design for easy loading.
