If you are placing a skip on the highway, you must hire one from a skip company. The skip company must apply for a licence.
The skip company is required to meet the terms and conditions set down in the licence. It's your responsibility to check they have the licence and that it doesn't run out before the building work is finished.
Apply for a skip licence
You must apply at least 2 weeks before the skip is required on site. New licences cost £68.50 and renewals cost £34.
The licence is valid for 14 days.
There is a charge of £68.50 if equipment is not removed before the licence expires.
