Make Sure That You Know Your Skip Legalities!

Posted in Skip Services by Skiphire UK on August 21th, 2015

As experts in skip hire in Bristol and across the country, we make sure that we understand all the ins and outs of modern skip hire. These days, it seems like you need permission and permits for everything and absolutely everything needs to go through some kind of local authority before it is approved.

Parking, in particular, is an area which has more legal complexities than almost any other, and similar rules apply to skip placement. Skips require something very similar to a parking permit. Here at Skip Hire UK, if your skip won’t fit on your personal property, we can help you to obtain a skip placement permit to ensure that you avoid any unpleasant fines.

Where You Can And Can’t Leave Your Skip!

You aren’t allowed to place your skip on a public pavement, as this can lead to a whole heap of problems with regards to public safety. Of course, there is also the downside of your skip being something of a public eyesore.

You will be required, if you don’t have private land to place the skip on, to gain a permit to place your skip on the road. Without this permit or license, you could be fined as much £1,000!

Safety First With Skip Hire In Bristol

Thanks to the size and shape of your skip, you will need to ensure that your placement has certain marking on and around it. Stop us if this sounds familiar, but insufficient markings can lead to fines of up to – you guessed it - £1,000! Reflective markings, traffic cones or night safety lamps, as well as the name and contact number of the owner of the skip must all be present and easily accessible.

Some areas are not suitable for larger skips, simply due to the design of the road or the proximity of other properties, but here at Skip Hire UK, we offer a range of other skip sizes to ensure that you can find the ideal skip for your property’s requirements.
