Do I need a council permit for a skip?

So, you’ve decided you need a skip and you know which size you’re going for. But do you need a skip permit? If you are placing your skip on private land, like your driveway or garden, the answer is no. However, if the skip needs to be placed on public land, such as a pavement or roadside, you will need a permit.

The price of skip permits can vary across different local authorities, though they typically land between £15 and £60. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry – if you need a permit, we will sort all the details and include the price in the quote for your skip hire. Just get in touch today and we can get everything booked in for you.
