Domestic Skip Hire FAQs

What CAN’T go in a domestic skip?

Generally speaking, the following materials can’t be disposed of in a skip: liquid waste, WEEE waste, chemicals, solvents, hazardous materials (e.g. asbestos), batteries, clinical waste, fluorescent tube bulbs, tyres, oil, compressed gas and more. However, the team at Woodford Recycling can help you handle such items through our hazardous waste disposal service

Do I need a permit to hire a domestic skip from Woodford Recycling?

The question of whether you require a skip permit depends entirely on where you plan to place the skip. Skips placed on private land, such as in your driveway or front garden, will typically not require a permit. However, if your property has limited space and you’ll need the skip to be kept on the road then you will require a permit from your local council. When you hire a skip from Woodford Recycling, our friendly team can help you handle all the paperwork and ensure your skip complies with all regulations.

Can a neighbour put a skip outside my house?

As long as they have a skip permit, a neighbour can put a skip on the road outside your house as this is classed as public land. However, a skip can never be placed on your private property, or blocking your driveway, without your express permission.

Do I need to put lights on my skip?

To prevent accidents and ensure safety at night, you will usually need to put lights at each end of your skip if it’s being placed on a public road. If you’re unsure whether your skip requires lights, consult our friendly team – we’re always happy to help.
