Introduction to skip permits

To put a builder's skip on a public road authorised skip companies need a permit from the local authority. Skips should not be placed on the highway until an application to do so has been processed and the licence has actually been issued.

To run a skip hire business you also need a skip operator licence.

Please see Conditions for placing skips on the public highway.
