Skip permits in Birmingham

In some scenarios we may need to acquire a skip permit, this is normally impacted by where you want to keep your skip.

If one is required we will obtain the permit for you. A skip permit licence period in Birmingham lasts 7 days and costs £21 per week. Below are some useful resources if you would like to learn more about skip permits.

Parking suspensions in Birmingham

If you live in an area which has permit parking or you plan for the skip to be placed in the pay and display parking space you will also need a parking suspension, in addition to the skip permit.

These are usually charged by the day and can add considerably to the cost as the council will need to place a notice up and suspend the space.


Birmingham skip hire FAQs

When choosing a skip there are some considerations which will impact on which size and type of skip is the most suitable, where you plan to place it and what you plan to put inside of it.

We have detailed the main skips with our frequently asked questions section, but we can hire almost any type of skip.

The smallest skip that is widely available is a ‘Midi’ skip (4 cubic yards). Increasing in size are 6 - 8 cubic yards ‘Builders’ skips, followed by ‘Maxi’ and extra-large skips, which range from 10 - 12 yards.

Larger still are specialist skips for large commercial projects. These include lockable skips and Roll On, Roll Off (RORO) containers and these are usually priced by transport and tonnage rate.

Skips are generally a flexible waste removal solution. However, there are restrictions on what waste streams can go into each skip and the mixing of certain waste types. Broadly speaking, standard household and bulky business waste can be thrown into a skip, as well as standard garden and construction waste streams.

These items cannot be removed by a skip without prior arrangement: white goods/large electrical items, hazardous waste such as fluorescent lighting tubes, fridges, TV’s and monitors, food waste, plasterboard and gypsum waste, chemicals and solvents.

You will require a skip permit from your local council if you intend to situate your skip on a public road. The costs vary and are dependent upon each local authority but in the majority of cases, we can apply for your skip permit and include the additional cost in your order.  

If your skip is due to be placed in an area which has permit-only parking or if the parking space is Pay and Display, you will require a parking suspension in addition to a skip permit.

Parking suspensions are usually charged on a day-by-day basis and require the council to place a notice to suspend the parking space and this increases the cost considerably.
