For householders, correct positioning of the skip is vital. A skip needs a 11ft-wide (3.4m) entrance and is up to 12ft long. Most driveways are suitable for skips, but thought should be given to the quality of the surface as lorries can be heavy.  You may also have exposed drain covers, low branches or a restricted access. We encourage you to provide us with as much information as possible when ordering your skip.  We can make alternative arrangements in the form of our grab hire service if a traditional skip is not possible due to your location.  Please give us a call if you are unsure.

If the skip will not be going on private property and is instead going on a public highway or council owned property, Collard Environmental will arrange a skip permit for you through your local council, along with lighting and cones on the skip to comply with regulations.
