If you need to place your skip on a public highway (a road) you will require a skip permit from your local council. It is illegal to place a skip on a public highway without permission. We are registered with the Council and we will purchase the permit on your behalf. There is an additional charge for this depending on the local authority you reside in.

The normal period is between one and seven days for domestic customers. If your skip is situated on the road, there are restrictions according to the Council, this usually varies from 14 to 28 days. Please speak to our team about this if you are a commercial customer.
