Skip Hire Permits

If the skip is to be located on public land, such as on the road, a footpath or verge, a permit is required by law.

Please allow 10 days notice for this. Whilst it MAY be possible to get a permit with shorter notice if the location is not traffic sensitive, this is not guaranteed.
