Requirements / Skip Hire Permit

If you’re planning on having you skip delivered onto public property like the road then you will require a skip hire permit from your local council. These permits usually last either 1, 2 or 4 weeks depending on the council in your area.

You can get the skips delivered even longer than these but will face an additional price for this and sometimes this isn’t available on busy roads etc.

The average cost of a skip permit is around £25 but this can change substantially from council to council. Another factor is the length of time you intend to have a skip located onto public property for, the longer the more expensive.

If however, you were to choose to have the skip dropped off on private property you would not be subject to these permits and additional costs making it cheaper for you.
