Skip bins are hired for rubbish removal, or to remove old furniture from your property. But Pinterest tells you that you could upcycle furniture into something better. What if I told you that even skip bins are now widely used for other purposes other than rubbish removal?
People nowadays have fun and creative ways to use these skip bins. You may wonder why you’ve never thought about it. Here are non-conventional ways to use your Skip Bin.
Flower Box and Urban Gardens
They say that planting could reduce the impact of humans to the environment. However, land in urban cities is usually covered with cement. Using skip bins, planting is possible wherever you are. Just get some earth to fill the bin, and plant your seeds. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a small or large skip bin. You can start your new hobby, colour your environment, and give back to mother Earth in no time.
Swimming Pools/Hot Tubs
Nowadays, people can use skip bins not just for waste removal but also for beating the heat. The size of dumpsters is adequate to accommodate at least three people. Put that number in a swimming pool or Jacuzzi and it’s a party! The internet has a glut of suggestions on how to turn a of skip bin into a super cool swimming pool, with slides, on a lift, or even one with a bar. The possibilities are endless.
Instead of digging up your backyard, you can have a mobile pool or Jacuzzi complete with lights and heaters. How cool would it be to have a 10m3 skip bin pool in your backyard and have all your friends over?

He turned a 27-metre skip bin into an Art Gallery that houses over five hundred pieces of art.
It’s not just an art gallery; it’s a mobile art gallery. So if you feel artistic and you don’t feel like settling, turn a skip bin into an art gallery. Yours could just be the next masterpiece.
