Permits and lights
If the only space you have to put a skip is on the public highway you will require a permit from your local authority. Applications for permits vary from Borough to Borough but we will be happy to arrange the permit for you if we can. Skips left on the highway overnight also require lights. For more information on the pros and cons of hiring a skip, just give Metro Waste a call.
WHEN IS A SKIP NOT AN OPTION?
If you don't have your own private land and live on one of London's busy Red Routes, you won't be able to hire one of our skips. Similarly, some roads are simply too narrow to place a skip on the road but don't worry, we've got that covered too. Our tipper hire service is a a great alternative when hiring a skip just simply isn't possible. With a huge capacity of 13.6 cubic metres, we're able to remove either full or part loads, so you'll only pay for the amount of rubbish that's being cleared. Why not give us a call and let us know what waste you need removing and we;ll be happy to help.
