Is a Council Permit Required for Hiring a 4 Yard Skip?

Skip hire permits are only usually required for skips placed on council-owned land or premises – such as on the road or its grass verge. They normally cost from £15 to £60 (it depends on the council). If the skip is going on private land, then no permit is needed.
