Do I need a licence to hire a skip?

When you hire a skip, do you need a licence, or is this all sorted by the company? I just want to make sure that I am not breaking any laws when I am using the skips!

Your skip hire company should cover all of the necessary licenses to be able to deal with the waste, however if you want to place your skip on a road or another public place while it is used, you will need to get a permit from your local council, and it is important to get this sorted as soon as you possibly can when you know that you would like to hire a skip.

Only if it's being stored on a public highway. You will also have to display high-vis strips or some form of reflective light as well, so that cars will be able to see it when they drive down your road at night. That one is more of a health and safety thing, but the company should be able to provide you with everything that you need in this respect.

You have to make sure the company has waste carrier license if you want to follow the law.
