A skip is a large open-topped waste container designed for loading onto a special type of lorry. Instead of being emptied into a garbage truck on site, as a wheely bin is, a skip is removed, or replaced by an empty skip, and then tipped at a landfill site or transfer station. Typically skip bins have a distinctive shape, the longitudinal cross-section of the skip bin looks like one or two trapezoids sat one on top of the other. The lower trapezoid has the smaller edge at the bottom of the skip bin, and a longer edge at the top. Where there is an upper trapezoid, it has the smaller edge at the top. At either end the skip bin there is a sloping floor or wall. On either side of the skip bin there is usually two lugs onto which chains can be attached. It is using the chains attached to the lug that allows the heavy skip bin to be lifted on to, or off of a lorry.
