The costs above are just based on hiring a skip on a two week basis off of the road, if you require a skip to be placed on the road you would need to organise a permit with your local council. The skip hire company would normally organise this for you, the cost of a skip permit with Birmingham Council is £21 per week and takes the council 5 working days to process, see further information here: https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/20111/information_for_developers/709/apply_for_a_skip_permit/2 - Some skip companies will charge an admin fee for this so ensure you ask your skip company if they are adding an admin fee as many do not and offer this free of charge.
However, we would not recommend just going with cheapest price you received either. There are a lot of dodgy operators within the waste industry so please ensure the company you choose are disposing of their waste in accordance with the current environmental guidelines provided by the Environmental agency. This includes:
- The skip operator must hold a valid waste carriers license (all skip companies should provide this on request)
- The skip operator must provide you with a valid waste transfer note on collection of your skip, this will contain the classification of waste collected, the waste carriers license used to carry the wast legally and it should also have the tipping location where the waste was tipped
- With currenåçt recycling operations all waste companies should be aiming to recycling a minimum of 90% of waste collected in a general waste skip, a lot of companies are now offering 100% recycling rates due to Refuse Derived Fuel or RDF.
