Hmm.. what do you call them? Dumpsters? Its not really a dumpster though.. its a skip

Yeah I guess they’re like a dumpster! Pretty much the same thing just a different shape and name! Wonder if it has to do with the trash truck style? (I’m way too invested in learning about this trash receptacle haha)

Ok. Lets say you are having the builders in to demolish your old patio and build a new one. They will usually hire a skip and throw all the remains of the old patio in there, hire another guy with a big truck with a crane to haul it away. This doesn’t happen on your side of the pond?

Yes! We have these. I’ve typically seen one that can be connected to a truck that can haul it away, but yeah this is pretty much the same as what we have in the US.

In the States a similar activity takes place, but the container and the truck to remove it are differently shaped. The trucks in the States tend to have rollers rather than a crane and the bin is longer and flatter. Seems it is a case of parallel evolution to solving the same problem.

We definitely have that, they just look different and have other names!
