Additional Skip Hire Details

Skip permits are required by law, if you want to place a skip on any public road or pavement. A skip permit is sometimes called a skip licence, but are the same thing. If you do fail to get a permit then your skip can be removed before you have filled it and you are likely to be fined. You do not need a permit if you put want to put your skip on private land, such as your driveway or field.

Contact the council

Skip permits are issued by councils not your skip hire company. The majority of councils allow your skip hire company to apply for a permit on your behalf although a few may require you to order it direct, we will be able to advise you on this. On average it can take 3 or 4 days to arrange a permit, so if you are hiring a skip for the road, remember to allow some extra time for this when planning your waste removal. If you do not have the time to wait for a permit, you may wish to contact us about our man and van teams for fast waste removal.

Prices vary across the UK

Charges for skip permits do vary according to your location in the UK and the length of time you need to have your skip on the road. Councils normally issue them for one to two weeks and then this can be extended, obviously for an additional charge. The average cost of a skip license is normally around £27. You may find that your skip hire company adds a little on to there costs in organising the permit on your behalf, remember you can always organise this yourself.

Parking suspension fees for skips

You may also need a parking suspension if your skip is to be placed in a controlled parking zone (CPZ), such as in a residents parking bay or metered parking area, then unfortunately you will need to pay parking bay suspension fees on top of your skip hire and permit fees. These vary dramatically from council to council. In some parts of London for example, they can be as much as £70 per day, but others can be completely free of charge.

Skip hire FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Waste King offer the best value and range of skip hire services in the UK! We have a wide range of skip options, from different sizes and uses through to exceptional prices to help you save money.

We price very competitively, with skips ranging from as little as £129 for our smallest skip. We have a range of size options, meaning you can get a low cost skip for whatever job you need!

When filling a skip, the load must be level. So, to help you meet this requirement, you should choose a skip with a slightly larger capacity than you think the collected waste will require. We supply a wide range of sizes, so please refer to the table above to see which size would be most appropriate for your needs.

Skips come in various sizes both for domestic and industrial use. Roughly, one cubic yard is equivalent to one metric tonne (1,000 kilograms) of waste.

  • ‘Mini Skip’ – which will hold two cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to two tonnes (2,000kg) of waste.
  • ‘Builder’s Skip’ – which will hold six cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to six tonnes (6,000kg) of waste.
  • ‘Builder’s Skip’ – which will hold eight cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to eight tonnes (8,000kg) of waste.
  • ‘Maxi Skip’– which will hold 12 cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to eight tonnes (12,000kg) of waste.

When you hire a skip, the longer that the skip is your responsibility, the more money it’ll cost you. So you’ll want to make the whole exercise as short – and cost effective – as possible.

On average, most customers rent a skip for between seven and ten days – although this period can be extended.

It is easy to get in touch with us: either call us on 0370 343 9990 or email info@wasteking.co.uk to discuss your requirements and receive your obligation free quote.

There are no hidden costs as we must communicate the charges to you. The most common charges for skips are listed below:

Over-filled skips ( not level load ) - You are responsible for making sure the skip is level load as you are hiring the skip container. If the skip is overfilled and unsafe to carry to the professional HGV driver may decide he can not remove the skip, and a wasted journey fee can be applied. It is a legal requirement that the load is safe to transport. 

Wasted journeys fee – When it is not our error that the skip can not be collected, we charge a fee to cover the time and fuel of the transport. We always try to avoid this as we have rented the skip to another customer, requiring the skip off-hire. The driver may not collect due to the skip being overloaded or the skip is obstructed or blocked. 

Skip permits and suspension – if the skip is on the public highway, we will need to apply for the license to place the skip on the road legally. Some areas, especially in cities with parking issues, require you to suspend a parking bay. This is a separate cost to a skip permit and can require an admin fee. We would recommend a man and van service to remove your rubbish as this permit fee can be expensive

The HGV driver commands a high wage, and the transport fuel can be expensive as the lorries usually are 18-ton trucks. The disposal of mixed materials can be £130+Vat per ton across the country.

We deliver many different types of sizes, from open and lockable. We even provide drop-down doors for those heavy materials in some areas. We even supply roll-on roll-off. Skips are identified through cubic yards or the name. The list is below:

2 yard skip Mini
4 yard skip Midi 
6 yard skip builders 
8 yard skip large builders
8 yard skip lockable 
10 yard skip 
10 yard skip lockable 
12 yard skip Maxi 
12 yard skip lockable 
14 yard skip 
14 yard skip lockable 
16 yard skip 
16 yard skip lockable
20 yard Roll on roll off (RoRo)
35 yard Roll on roll off (RoRo)
40 yard Roll on roll off (RoRo)

Items are prohibited from skips: Unless we approve the item before the delivery. 
•    Food waste
•    Hazardous waste 
•    Asbestos
•    Chemicals 
•    plasterboard 
•    Fridges and freezers

As long as we have access and the skip is not obstructed, we can collect the skip without you being home, although we require you to be contactable. The skip must not be over filled, and we must have enough space to remove the skip safety.
If the pickup fails, a waste journey fee will apply.
