Do I need a permit for 2 Yard Skip Hire?

In most cases due to the small skip size you may be able to fit a 2 yard skip on your drive or within the boundary of your property, however for some property types such as flats and terraced houses where this isn’t possible you will require a permit from your local council. We can arrange these on your behalf, however you must consider that arranging a skip permit can take up to 10 days.

When ordering your 2 yards skip with us please allow for this time when choosing your delivery date to ensure that you are compliant with your local council regulations and can obtain a skip permit in a timely manner.

What waste materials cannot be placed in a 2 yard skip?

There are certain waste materials which require specialist handling due to how hazardous they can be. Therefore these shouldn’t be placed within a skip and you should seek the help of a specialist hazardous waste recycling professional.

The types of waste which aren’t allowed in a skip are:

  • Batteries
  • Solvents, Paint, paint tins
  • Chemicals
  • Electrical items
  • Paint, paint tins, solvents
