    • Can my skip be placed on the road?

      Yes. If this is the case you need a skip permit, which we can arrange for you. Please allow up to a week for us to do this. If you need the skip sooner please contact the office and we will see if we can arrange a quicker permit for you. Alternatively you can choose a wait and load where you do not need a permit, you just have the skip for 30 minutes and the driver waits with the skip as you load it. Please note all skip permits have a surcharge.

    • How long can I have the skip for?

      You can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. If you require having the skip longer this can be arranged, please contact the office to do so.

    • What is a wait and load?

      A wait and load is where you do not need a permit, you just have the skip for 30 minutes and the driver waits with the skip as you load it. These can be done on your property or on the road, without a permit.
