Where can I put my skip?

imageSkips are seen all over the place; on the road to help ease of drop off, or on personal property in front or back gardens, but it’s important to bear in mind that the location must be suitable for the skip lorry to access as well as being in a convenient place for filling.

If you don’t have the space on personal property and only have the option of public land such as a road or pathway, then you will need a permit from your Local Authority. The permits will take around three to four days to be issued with a maximum duration of seven days, LSPS can organise these permits on your behalf, find out how here.

If you do have the space on personal property then you need to bear in mind that skips can be very heavy and may cause damage to tarmac or paved driveways, however we can advise you on the ideal location.

When your skip is delivered then the location needs to be at least 2.75 metres wide (9 ft.) to allow the skip lorry access. Make sure that the skip doesn’t block any other access.

Another important consideration is to not overload your skip as this will only have to be emptied to the legal limit. Read our advice on how to fill your skip effectively.
