Once you know the size of skip that you require it’s time to consider where your skip is going to be placed?
- Will it be off road on private property?
- On the road? (Public highway)
If your skip is going on private property you need to ensure there is space for your skip to be sited. This can be on your driveway or a hard standing in your privately owned garden.
Standard Skip Lorries will require a minimum of 10ft (3.3metres) width to be able to gain access to the skip. This applies no matter size skip you have ordered.
Placing a skip on the Road or Grass Verge (Public highway)
If you are unable to put your skip on your private land or there is not enough access room for a skip lorry you will have to place your skip on the road or grass verge (public highway) outside your property.
To do this you will need permission from your local council. Most local councils will allow our company to apply for these permits for you BUT some council offices insist that it is the person hiring the skip / homeowner that must apply.
- All councils will charge for this privilege.
The charge for a skip permits varies depending on your local council and where you are in the UK.
