Legal Compliance

First and foremost, a road permit, also known as a skip permit, is a legal requirement set by local councils. It ensures that your skip hire complies with local regulations and avoids potential fines. By obtaining a permit, you demonstrate your commitment to following the law and maintaining public safety.

Safety Measures

A road permit comes with specific guidelines on where and how a skip can be placed. These rules are designed to ensure the skip does not obstruct traffic, block pedestrian access, or pose a hazard to the public. For instance, the permit may specify the use of safety lights and markings on the skip to make it visible at night, reducing the risk of accidents.

Avoiding Obstructions

The placement of skips on public roads must be carefully managed to avoid causing unnecessary obstructions or inconvenience to road users and residents. A road permit ensures that the skip is placed in a location that minimises disruption while still being accessible for waste disposal.
