For skips to be placed on a public highway, Skip Hire Permits must be granted. A permit is required for both residential and commercial use.
There are various restrictions that come with skip permits, such as it must not be placed on double yellow lines and it must be lit at night. Hurleys will be able to assist in these restrictions wherever possible to ensure that your skip is legal.
Many councils request that the skip hire company apply for the skip permits and in this instance, contact us and we will ensure your skip is legal. A couple of councils require you, the customer, to arrange a permit so check on your local council website to be sure. If you are unsure, call us on 0800 883 0426 and we will happily advise.
