If you wish to place a skip on any part of the highway, you will need a licence.
It is the skip owner not the householder or contractor who must apply for skip licences on behalf of their customers.
You don’t need a permit to place a skip on private land.
How do I apply for a licence?
If you regularly need skip licences you should apply to be placed on the skip company register
Companies on the register - apply for a licence
Unregistered skip owners (for one-off skip siting’s) - apply for a licence
