Council Permits

If your skip needs to be placed on council property, like a public road, you’ll typically require a skip hire permit. The cost of these permits varies between different local councils, ranging from £15 to over £60. Wavertree Waste includes permit fees in our quotes, simplifying the process for you.

Hire Period

The duration for which you hire a skip can also impact the price. Generally, longer hire periods result in higher costs. Wavertree Waste now offers unlimited hire periods, but extended hires can lead to additional permit expenses, as most council permits are valid for only 14 days to 1 month.

Skip Weight Limits

Each skip company has its own weight limits for skips. Get in touch with Wavertree Waste for our latest skip weight limits. As a rule of thumb, assume that each cubic yard of waste equals about 1 tonne. For example, a 2-yard skip can hold 2 tonnes. While smaller skips can often be filled with heavy materials, larger ones should be a mix of heavy and light waste due to loading truck weight limits.

Restricted items

Not all items can be disposed of in a skip. Prohibited items might include electrical items, tires, batteries, solvents, paint, oil, compressed gas cylinders, hazardous waste, and plasterboard. Give us a call to get a better understanding of our specific rules regarding what can and cannot be thrown into a skip.
