Skip Hire Permits: The Lowdown
Any time the word “permit” comes up, it’s tempting to sigh and start to worry. But with skip hire permits, you really needn’t – the process of securing one is straight forward, and in most cases you won’t even need one! Skip permits are in place to ensure that waste disposal, recycling and waste management companies around Herne Bay don’t simply stick skips down in awkward places, blocking traffic and causing potentially serious public health issues. If you’ve ever bumped into one you’ll know what we’re talking about.
If you’re lucky enough to have your own driveway, front garden or private bit of land that’s appropriate to house our cheap skips, then you’re in the clear. But if you need to place the skip on the road or another piece of public land, you’ll need to get permission from Herne Bay’s local authority. It’s rare they’re declined, the pricing is fairly cheap and they can be supplied for up to a month, to ensure they match your skip hire term.
Most waste disposal, recycling and waste management companies around Herne Bay will assist their clients in securing a permit, and Medway Skip Hire is no different. We can contact the council on your behalf and quickly secure a permit, so you can get using our cheap skips without delay. Sometimes, depending on where they are to be placed, the permit will dictate that reflectors, cones or similar safety measures are implemented. Again, we’ll take care of this, so it’s one less thing to have to remember when looking for convenient waste disposal, waste management and recycling methods!
