Where possible, skips should always be placed on private land.
However, skips to be placed on any part of the public highway must be licensed. Please contact a registered skip operator. The skip operator will apply for the necessary licence on your behalf.
The term 'public highway' includes roads, pavements and verges.
Who can apply?
Only registered skip operators who hold £10 million public liability insurance and a valid Waste Traders licence can apply for skip licences.
Before applying, please read the skip licence conditions
