Access Needed to Deliver a skip

You will also need to think about where you will put the skip. A typical skip lorry is roughly 9ft wide, 22ft long and has a gross weight of around 17 tonnes with a full skip. You will need to bear this in mind if you require the skip placed in a confined or weak space (such as very narrow streets or weak bridges, behind houses etc.). You cannot locate a skip directly below low trees.

Otherwise, you may need to consider placing the skip in another location, such as on the public highway. If accessibility is a problem, then contact a member of the Transport team on 020 7232 1711 option 1, as we can still offer alternative waste disposal services apart from skip hire. We offer a Jumbo Bag at 1 cubic meter in size that can hold up to 200 kg, this is recommended for any waste type that is required to be collected separately for environmental legislation purposes; such as plasterboard. Call our waste experts today on 202 7232 1711 for further advise on how your waste should be collected and treated at the most competitive rates.


A permit is required if the skip is to be placed on a public highway. RTS Waste is able to provide permits when you place your order, for a small additional fee. Permits are normally available in 3-5 working days, in some cases sooner.

Who is Responsible for the Skips waste?

You are legally responsible for the contents of the skip you hire. You need to ensure that the waste disposed in the skip is suitable for general disposal and that the skip is not overloaded.

An overloaded skip is a hazard. The lorry may struggle to lift the skip, and your overfilled waste can be dangerous to other people as the skip is being lifted or transported. The contents of a skip should not exceed the height of the skip’s sides.

If your skip is overloaded, the Kent skip lorry driver reserves the right to either remove the excess waste from the skip, or refuse to remove the skip altogether. The latter may incur a wasted journey charge.

Please note that you must never set fire to the waste in your skip.
