To deposit a skip on the public highway, you need a permit from the local authority. No person or company may deposit a skip on the highway without first obtaining a permit.
Every skip that is placed on the highway must have a permit which is issued by the Council’s Street Works Team. Only the owner of a skip can apply for a permit, for example a skip hire company. Members of the public are not allowed to apply for a skip permit because they would not have the correct insurance or be able to comply with skip regulations. If builders' skips (whether small, medium or large) need to be placed on the highway (on the road, pavement or verge) then a permit has to be obtained by the skip operator.
To place a skip on the highway without first applying for and being granted a permit is an offence under the Highways Act 1980 and may result in a skip operator being prosecuted and the unlicensed skip removed. The skip operator (supplier) has the responsibility to ensure that skips are positioned on the highway in such a way that they do not cause an obstruction to other road users. The skip supplier is responsible for ensuring that all appropriate regulations and conditions are adhered to.
Note: It is NOT the householder or the builder’s or contractor’s responsibility to obtain a skip permit, but they should satisfy themselves that valid permission has been received by the Council for a skip to be placed on the highway.
The Council has the right to specify any conditions it deems necessary relating to the position of highway skips.
If you wish to put a skip on the road outside your house please contact your skip supplier in the first instance. In giving consideration to such requests the Street Works Team will have to assess a number of factors and they may not always be able to grant consent.
A permit can be valid for any period between 1 day and 14 days. For longer periods additional applications must be made. Only one skip will be allowed on site at any one time, except in exceptional circumstances.
If the Council are called out to make safe, reposition or remove a skip, a charge will be made. Skips placed on the highway shall not contain any inflammable, explosive or noxious material, or anything which is likely to cause nuisance to highway users. Contents of the skip shall be kept "damped-down", or covered to prevent dust or spillage on the highway. The skip must not be overloaded and must be removed when full.
Skip permit – Minimum 48hrs
Please note: It is in the public interest that the authority must process your application before it can be granted. If you have not heard from the local authority within a reasonable period, please contact them using the details below

Skips - Frequently asked questions
Do I need a skip permit?
Skip operators placing a skip on the highway need to obtain a skip permit.
What does it cost?
The determination of a skip permit application cost £23.00. If granted, the permit is valid for a period of 14 days. This fee covers the initial consent and 14 days permission to deposit a skip on the highway. Subsequent days will be charged at £23.00 per 14 days or part thereof.
Does the Council provide skips?
No, but the names and details of local skip companies should be in your local phonebook.
How do I apply?
If you are the hirer, it is the skip company’s responsibility to apply on your behalf. You can check if a permit has been applied for by contacting the Street Works Team on 01443 494796/494798. Any skips placed on the highway without a valid permit may be removed without warning by the Council.
What does a permit cover?
The depositing of a skip in compliance with the Council’s skip conditions:
If I have a permit for a skip in another part of Rhondda Cynon Taf , am I covered?
No, the permit is site specific, each address with a skip requires a permit.
Can I have a skip in a back lane?
Consideration would be given to such a request, with possible conditions of length and placement /position.
When is a permit not required?
When a skip is placed on private land or a private drive way, then a permit is not necessary. It is advisible to check with the Street Works Team if in any doubt.
How long does it take?
We require min 48hrs notice from the skip company to issue them with a permit.
However if there are particular traffic issues on the road where the skip is to be deposited (e.g. bus route, narrow road etc), a site inspection maybe required to negotiate conditions and possible alternate locations for the depositing of the skip.
In these instances it may take 3 days to issue the permit. The skip company involved will be informed of any traffic issues at the time of application.
Hirers are advised not to overfill skips as skip companies can refuse to collecte an overloaded skip as it can be dangerous to transport. Any excess material must be disposed of by the hirer in a responsible manner. The Council would consider excess material from an overfilled skip as fly tipping by the hirer.
Full skips must be removed for emptying as soon as possible.
