Skip location

Before you hire a skip, you need to think about where you want to put it.

What you need to do will depend on whether you want the skip on the roadside, or in your garden or driveway.

On the roadside

To keep a skip on the roadside you need to hire it from a Royal Borough of Greenwich approved skip company. The company will apply for a skip licence on your behalf and agree on the safest place to put the skip with us.

Each skip must be smaller than three metres by two metres.

In a council estate or communal area

To have a skip on council housing land, you must apply for a licence through your local estate office. The licence covers skips of up to six yards in length.

It will be valid for 28 days once issued.

In your garden or driveway

You don't need a skip licence and you don't have to use one of the skip companies on our list.
