Skip permits

You must have a skip permit to put a skip on the road. This includes the pavement and grass verge. A skip permit is sometimes known as a skip licence.

How do I apply?

We only accept applications from skip hire companies with £5 million public liability insurance. Individual members of the public can not apply for skip permits.

To apply for a skip permit, contact your desired skip hire company. The hire company will then complete an application form and send it to the address on the form.

How much does it cost? 

A skip permit costs £10 for each week, or £30 for each month, that the skip is on the road.

We will send a monthly invoice to the hire company who will pass the charge on to you.
