Council Permit for Hiring a 20 Yard Skip

A skip hire permit is only usually needed for a skip placed on council-owned land or premises, such as the roadside or a grass verge. They normally cost from £15 to £60 (it depends on your council). If the skip is going to be placed on private land, no permit is required.
