Getting permission for a skip
Every skip placed on Curo-owned land must have a licence, which is issued by the Community Services Team. If a skip is placed on an adopted highway, it will require a licence from the local council.
Only owners of a skip can apply for a licence. In the majority of cases, the licence is obtained by the skip hire company. Curo doesn't hire out skips, so you'll need to contact a skip hire company.
The skip hire company is responsible for obtaining the correct licence, you should check that this has been carried out, from the correct licensor (Curo or council). The licence must also cover the time period for which you require the skip. A standard licence covers a 28-day period.
How to apply:
1. Complete a skip licence application form and send to the Community Services Team.
2. Provide a copy of your public liability insurance – It must cover at least £5 million.
3. Pay the administration fee:
28-day licence = £65
Licence renewal = £54
Late application = £111*
*Application after skip has already been placed or skip hire complete.

4. We'll then check the proposed location for the skip.
5. The licence will then be returned to the applicant, either stating “Permission Granted” or “Not Granted”.
Note: The skip must not be on-site before the agreed placement date. No skip can be placed on Curo-owned land without written permission from Curo.
This process can take up to seven working days, so early application is recommended.
