What Is Skip Hire?

Skip hire is the process of hiring a skip, which is a large open-topped container used for the disposal of waste. Skips come in various sizes and are hired out by skip hire companies such as Skip Hire Essex. A skip is delivered to your site, then after you have filled it with waste, it is collected and taken to a disposal facility. Skips are ideal for all kinds of waste, including construction materials, garden waste, and general household waste.
