Skips (known as dumpsters in some of the colonies) are usually filled with garbage in a totally chaotic manner, but not any more, because once a year, and only for a single week, there is now The Lovely Skips Competition.

The winner of the competition will be the candidate who's rubbish filled skip displays the most original/artistic/tastefull display/arrangement of its diverse detritus.

       very creative. US dumpsters are too high to get in and out easily, and the smell! don't even go there. And according to these photos, you didn't invent this...

       Those images in the link are not what I have in mind. The idea is to use/re-arrange the existing contents... bit like flower arranging.

       You doubt the *judgement* of the 'Bakery?

       Can we still get the deal if you live in the U.S.? Or willwe over here just be arranging our dumpsters to get laughed at?

       I think it's one of those things they claim they do to confuse us lower classes.

       I've had some good times dumpster diving. The better the economy, the better the finds. I own a beautiful fifty year old leather valise, it just needed a zipper.   

       I try to ride herd on my neighbors and their dumpster habits. I arrange for maximum fill and relocate their misses. Some people's kids...

       What is one to make, then, of the use of "Skip" as a nickname here in the States? (Is it elsewhere as well?)

       ( I mean, first I had to deal with being called "Skippy Peanut Butter," then it was "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo"... now this.)
smendler, Oct 20 2009
  

       But I'll bun it anyway, it's a fine idea.

       Why not an annual paint your skip competition?   

       It would give the graffiti gangsters something to deface.
