    Can I Hire a Skip if I Don’t Have a Driveway?

    Are you thinking of renovating your home soon? Maybe you’ve recently bought a new house and it needs a bit of work, or perhaps you just fancy a big clear out. Whatever it is, skip hire is the most convenient way to get rid of all your debris and unwanted items without having to make repeated trips to your local waste collection centre.

    Most people have driveways where they can put a skip for the duration of their project (could be days, could be weeks), but what about if you don’t have any available private land to place your skip on? If this is a question you’ve been asking, keep reading as we explain everything you need to know about hiring a skip.

    Can Skip Hire Work for Your Renovation Plans?

    Firstly, consider whether skip hire could work for you. If you have bulky furniture items like a sofa to get rid of, but not much else, consider advertising it for free on social media or donating it to charity instead of throwing it out. On the other hand, if you’re going to need rubble removal for a full blown home renovation, skips are ideal because all of your waste can be easily contained and properly disposed of.

    Can I Hire a Skip if I Don’t have a Driveway?

    If you don’t have a driveway or a front garden, you need to contact your local council to get a skip permit. This will give you legal permission to have a skip placed on the public road for an agreed amount of time. You must get permission from the council before you hire a skip. It usually takes a few days for the application to go through, so factor this into your renovation plans to ensure you’re not caught short.
