Skip licensing

Skip operator's licence

Skip hire companies must have a skip operator's licence. Companies must also have a permit before placing a skip on any public road or footpath.

You will have to pay a fee for each new and renewed licence you apply for.

The registration fee for skip companies to operate in Thurrock is £60.

You can be fined if you:

  • place an unlicensed skip on a public road
  • cause damage to any public property
  • fail to make sure the skip is safe
