Does Your Skip Need Lights and Cones?

If you’re skip is going to be placed on a public highway it must have lights illuminating it at each end in low light or night time conditions. These may well be provided by your local council and where lights and cones are provided, you are responsible for ensuring these are placed correctly for the duration of your service.

Skips and Controlled Parking Zones

If your skip needs to be placed in a controlled parking zone (CPZ), typically a residents parking bay, pay & display space or metered parking space, you are responsible for ensuring any fees are paid. Should any penalties arise because of non-payment of those fees, you will be liable for this fine.

How Long Can You Keep a Skip on Private Land or the Road?

Skips can either be placed on private land (your drive, garden etc.) or on a public highway but the rules affecting how long your skip can be there differ for each. When a skip is placed on your drive or other private land you are able to keep the skip in place for as long as you require, however, most of our customers tend keep it between one and 14 days before asking us to collect. On the other hand, when a skip is placed on a public highway, road or pavement you would need to make sure your permit covers the time period you’ll need the skip in place and check our permit to make sure it’s long enough for your needs. We can help you with this by talking to one of our friendly team on 03300 535 535.
