Your go-to guide about skip hire permits

Your go-to guide about skip hire permits

Thinking about hiring a skip for your DIY project in Wigan? Fantastic idea – skip hire removes the need for tedious trips back and forth from the local tip – allowing you to complete your project faster.

Depending on your situation, you might need your skip to be positioned on the road, instead of your driveway or private land. And for us at Lostock Skips this is no problem, however, you will need a skip hire permit.

There is often a lot of confusion when it comes to skip hire permits – and this isn’t helped by the fact that councils have different ways of doing things. But relax, we can guide and advise you.

When do you need a permit?

Permits are required for skips placed on the public highway. If you don’t have access to a drive, your skip will need to be left on the road in front of your home.

A skip hire permit is proof that your project has been cleared with the local authorities and can be left on the road for the duration of your project.

Can skips be left on the pavement?

No. We only place our skips on private land and public roads. Skips left on the pavement will obstruct pedestrians and make it especially difficult for wheelchair users and pushchairs to manoeuvre safely without going on the road.

How can you get a permit?

Great news! Here at Lostock Skips, we can arrange permits for skip hire Wigan on your behalf – saving you the hassle. If you don’t have enough space on your drive for a skip, make sure you let us know when making your booking so we have plenty of time to get the permit sorted before you start disposing of rubbish.

The cost of the permit for skip hire in Wigan is usually £35 and will be included in the mark-up price.

How long does it take to obtain a permit?

It usually takes 3-4 days to receive a permit for skip hire in Wigan so make sure you plan ahead and let us know as soon as possible to prevent any holdups. Once the permit has been received, you’re able to dispose of rubbish in a skip placed on the road for as long as you agreed with the local authority.

How are skips positioned on the road?

We use our reliable fleets to deliver all domestic skips and ensure that they are placed carefully. When leaving a skip on the road, it’s important that it doesn’t:

  • block pavements, driveways, entrances or exits
  • block or cover utility access points, i.e. manhole covers
  • block junctions or restrict visibility (it needs to be more than 15m from a junction)

How can you make your skip safe on the road?

With skip hire Horwich, Wigan, and surrounding areas, we take care of every aspect – meaning all you need to do is load it with waste. We’ll make sure that your skip is positioned lengthways and not poking its nose out into the middle of the road.

For peace of mind, our contact number is predominately displayed on the side of the skip – so you can call us as soon as it needs collecting.

You will need to surround your skip with safety cones and lighting – ensuring it’s visible in periods of darkness. If your skip isn’t well-lit, road users are more likely to drive into it and you could be fined up to £1,000 for not complying with stringent regulations.

If you’d like to know more about skip hire permits for projects in Wigan, we are on hand from 7.00am till 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, so get in touch with us on 01204 698 153.
