Skip Hire Legalities
Skips cannot be placed on roads or verges without the appropriate permit from a local authority. The law states that a skip used on a public highway should be covered by a special permit as well as being highly visible with the use of lights and covered overnight and weekends (if not in use).
Please bear this in mind when booking a skip, and advise our team if a permit will be needed, or if there are any potential access issues with placing a skip on your land (such as limited space in gateways, narrow lanes).
Reston Waste are happy to organise road-side permits on your behalf. It is essential that you book in advance as permits can take up to ten days to arrive. Call our team of experts now.
