contenedores de basura/escombros
Explanation:
Hola.
Habría que tener en cuenta para quienes se dirige tu traducción. Creo que lo más neutro sería: "contenedores de escombros", unos grandes recipientes metálicos para recibir los escombros o materias de residuo. En Argentina les dicen "volquetes" para desechos o resiudos.
Definición: skip British and Australian, American trademark Dumpster (CONTAINER) noun [C]
a large metal container into which people put unwanted items or building or garden waste, and which is brought to and taken away from a place by a special truck when requested
We hired a skip over the weekend for all the old window frames.
They dumped the hedge cuttings in their neighbour's skip.
( Cambridge International Dictionary of English )
"coned off": estoy de acuerdo con Henry. Sería "señalizados/destacados con conos viales"

... señalizados con conos


Explanation:
No más uno; para el primero "skips" falta contexto.

El segundo se refiere a los conos de color anaranjado que se usan en la señalización de obras, etc. en los caminos; o sea que se coloquen.

partes omitidas


Explanation:
"Skips" puede referirse a esto; o sea, en la realización del trabajo (?) pueden omitir algunas partes por algún motivo pero como digo, falta el contexto. Es algo que se omite o se brinca o se pasa por alto, etc.
