5 Projects Where Mini Skips Are Essential!

5 Projects Where Mini Skips Are Essential!

We’ve all seen skip bins used heavily on construction sites for the removal of construction waste, but have you ever stopped to think where else they could be useful?

You may be surprised to realise just how adaptable skip bins are, and mini skips, even more so. If you’re not sure what a mini skip is, it is simply a smaller version of a standard skip bin. However, while this rings true with our mini skips, you could say that we have pimped ours out, making them more flexible and even easier to use.

Picture a standard skip bin; four walls, with the back wall being on more of an angle and lower than the other three walls. Well, ours aren’t like this. Our mini skips also have four walls, but each is the same height, and all walls sit at 90 degrees. While this differences our mini skips from traditional skips, the real uniqueness comes for the rear wall. It is hinged and can swing open to provide customers with walk-in access to the skip – you won’t find this with standard mini skips.

The unique design of our mini skips makes them suited to even more applications, which I discuss below.

Garden clean-ups

Call me crazy, but I actually really enjoy getting in the garden and giving it a good prune. Although it can leave me with a mountain of green waste what would have once taken me weeks to get rid of in the wheelie bin, I can now easily place all my garden clipping into a mini skip and have it removed and disposed of in next to no time at all.

This has really made garden clean-up easy, efficient, and best of all, enjoyable.

Garage clear-outs

If your garage is anything like my parents, it’s turned into a storage room for their junk of yesteryear. Junk which, mind you, they will never ever use again and have no reason for keeping. Whether you’re guilty of hoarding or just need to make room to make way for your car, a garage clear-out is necessary and so is a mini skip!

Home De-clutter

A cluttered house is good for no-one. It can cause turmoil in your everyday life, increase anxiety and cause friction amongst family members. However, all these troubles are easily resolved in a week by availing a mini skip. They are affordable, accessible and will allow you to de-clutter your home (and life) in next to no time.

Deceased Estates

Mini skips are an absolute necessity for clearing out a deceased estate. They will help you get through this emotionally-heavy task with speed and offer you with a little ease during this difficult time.

Due to their size, they can be positioned up close to the estate for easy access, and because our mini skips feature a rear swing door, you can walk heavy furniture and appliances into the skip without any struggle.

Rental Property refurbish

You never want to overcapitalise on an investment property, which is why a refurbishment is often a better choice than a renovation. A little garden clean, a couple of coats of new pain, perhaps a new bathroom vanity and kitchen benchtop, and voila – you’ve just increased the value of the property, making it more attractive and all you need for the cleanup is a mini skip.


While skip bins are fantastic for removing waste from a construction site, they are not limited to only construction sites. Skip bins and particularly mini skips can be used in a wide range of applications to help you complete several projects.

The unique design of 4 Waste Removals’ mini skip bins makes them even more flexible than standard skip bins and mini skips. Due to the rear swing door, they are an ideal solution for removing waste, junk, and unwanted goods around the home and garden, along with rental properties and deceased estates.
