Legalities and location.

Skips can’t be placed on roads without the appropriate permit acquired from a local authority. It is the law that a skip used on a public highway must be covered by a permit and also be highly visible with the use of lights. It must also be covered overnight and weekends if not in use.


We kindly request for you inform our team when booking a skip hire, of any potential access issue with place a skip on your premises or on the road, so we can advise you if a permit will be needed. Such limitations such as space into gateways, narrow lanes can avoid inconvenience if we are notified sooner.

Do’s and don’ts of skip hire.

Skip hire is an effective way to clear waste and unwanted items, however there are requirements that must be followed for legalities to be met.


It is most important when loading your skip to make sure all rubbish is in line and do not exceed the markings on the skip. During transportation back to our recycling facility, this ensures no items are liable to fall off which could cause injury to pedestrians or damage to cars and private property.


It is against the law to carry a skip that is loaded over and above the load level line.
