Do I need to speak to the council to hire a skip in Hindley?

If you’re about to begin work on a house renovation, garden project or some other large event where you’ll need somewhere to store the excess, and you’re in desperate need of skip hire, Hindley has multiple options for you to choose from. But for skip hire services and a cost-effective solution you can rely on, A&R Skips is hard to beat. We offer skip hire on both domestic skips and commercial skips in Hindley, with various skip sizes, so we’ll always have something you can put to good use.

If you’ve never hired a skip before, it can be a little daunting, especially if you’re not aware of the ins and outs of hiring a skip and the specific rules involved. One of the questions you may have asked yourself is – “Do I need to speak to the council to hire a skip in Hindley?” The short answer is ‘yes’ and ‘no’. But to give you something a little more concrete, we’ll need to look at the circumstances more closely…

At A&R Skips, we’re highly experienced in delivering skips to Wigan and the surrounding areas, so get in touch if you’re seeking next-day skip hire – we can help!

Should I let the council know I’m hiring a skip in Hindley?

Simply put, if you’re planning on hiring a skip in Hindley – or anywhere for that matter – and you’re going to place that skip on public property (i.e. the pavement or the road outside your house) you will need to inform the local council of your plans. This is because when a skip is placed outside the boundaries of your property and stands to interfere with the lives of others in the local community, the council need to be aware. Skip size doesn’t come into the equation either – as long as part or all of your Hindley skips are on public land, the council need to be notified.

Under these circumstances, you may need to be issued a council permit to use your skip in Hindley – you should contact the council and let them know where you’ll be placing your skip well in advance, so you can begin the process of obtaining a skip permit as soon as possible.

Skip permit service

As local skip hire experts, A&R Skips offer a fully inclusive skip permit purchase service in which we will handle obtaining the permit for you, if you are planning on using a skip in Wigan and the surrounding areas. But please be aware that Wigan Council requires 48 hours’ notice to produce a permit, so we won’t be able to deliver your skip straight away if this is necessary. But once your permit has come through, we can get on and deliver your skip to your location at a time that suits you.

Reach out to A&R Skips if you would like to know more about skip permits.
