J&N Skips FAQ
Where Should I Put My Skip?
Most people have skips place don their driveways. Please be aware that the stabilising equipment on our lorries, or the weight of the skip itself, can in very rare cases cause damage to driveways. Skips can be placed on public roads, but only if a permit to do so is secured from your local authority. If you want to place a skip on a traffic sensitive road, red route or parking bay, then you will be charged to do so by the day.
Can You Help Me Secure A Permit?
Yes. We will obtain any permit needed from your borough council on your behalf. Keep in mind that every borough charges different prices, ranging from £35 to £60. Permits can be requested for periods between 14 and28 days. As they can take up to 5 working days to obtain, please insure you book in advance.
Is There An Alternative To The Skip Hire Route?
You may want to consider using our wait-and-load rubbish. For light loads, end of site clearances and garden waste this often works out more cost effective, and you won’t need a permit. One of our drivers will come and wait with the skip for 45 minutes, you will need to load the skip. If you send us multiple pictures of the rubbish we can give you a quote over the phone.
What Can’t I Put In My Skip?
All skips are for general and inert waste only, and must be level loaded to ensure they can be safely transported. Due to waste regulations the following items cannot be placed in a skip:
