Don’t Forget To Think About Where The Skip Will Be Located!

It is very important that you remember to consider where the skip will be located. Access for the skip to be delivered and collected typically needs at least 9ft wide, 22ft long, and has a gross weight of around 17 tonnes with a full skip.

Also, please remember that you cannot locate a skip directly below trees.

If the location you were initially considering is unsuitable for a skip, you may have to place the skip in a different location. Additionally, please remember to get all necessary permissions regarding skip hire. If you want to place a skip on a public highway, a permit is required.

If you need a skip permit, speak to the RTS Waste team. For a small fee, we can provide a permit when you place your order. Permits are normally available in 3-5 working days, but in some cases they may be available sooner.

Who Is Responsible For Waste Inside A Skip?

Please remember that you are legally responsible for the contents of the skip you hire. As such, you need to ensure that the waste disposed in the skip is suitable for general disposal.

Also, it is very important that you do not overload the skip as an overloaded skip is a hazard. The lorry may struggle to lift the skip and the overfilled waste could be dangerous to other people as the skip is being lifted or transported. As such, the contents of a skip should never exceed the height of the skip’s sides.

Remember, if the skip is overloaded, the skip lorry driver reserves the right to either remove any excess waste from the skip, or refuse to remove the skip altogether. In case of the driver refusing to remove the skip, it may incur a wasted journey charge.

Additionally, it is very important to remember that you must never set fire to the waste in your skip.
