Road Permit Information

If your skip isn’t able to go on private land (driveway, garden etc), then it will likely need to go on a public highway. Please see the below information about road permits:

How do I obtain a skip hire permit?
Skip hire permits can be obtained through us when ordering your skip. When ordering (phone or online), you will be asked if your skip is going on private property. If it isn’t, we will arrange a skip hire permit prior to the skip being delivered.

How much does the skip hire permit cost?
The charge for a skip permit is £60, and these permits last for the 7 days after your skip has been delivered. This covers the administration costs of obtaining the permit, as well as the equipment provided to make the skip safe, such as cones and lights.

How does the permit process work?
Once you have placed your skip order, we will apply to your local council for a permit on your behalf – you do not need to do anything. Should the council have any concerns or questions, we may ask you for more information about where the skip is being sited.

What if I can’t get a skip hire permit?
On rare occasions, it’s possible that your local council will refuse to issue a skip hire permit. Perhaps your premises have limited access and a skip may cause problems for other street users. All is not lost, as we provide a Wait and Load Skips service for these situations. Our driver will arrive with the skip and allow you up to 30 minutes to fill the skip, before taking it straight away for you.


If you have any further questions on permits, please do not hesitate to contact us.
