Public Land Skip Placement

If you require your skip to be placed on public land, you need to let us know beforehand. This is because any skip placed on a public highway, or public land, requires a permit from the local authorities. Public land placements often require additional charges as they require a licence to be acquired. If you/we do not get this licence, our team will be unable to place the skip on public land.
