What you need to know about skip hire regulations in Liverpool

Are you planning a DIY project or looking to clear your garden in time for spring? Skip hire is a great way to remove waste – saving you the hassle of endless trips to the tip. GSH Skips operate in the Liverpool and surrounding area so if you live in this area and want a reliable skip hire service give us a call.

We provide domestic skips in a range of sizes, including 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14-cubic yards. Whatever size you order our years’ of experience will ensure that your skip hire complies with all regulations – leaving you to get on with your project.

Skip licenses

If you don’t have the space to leave the domestic skip on your drive, we can place it on the road for you. Skip hire regulations state that permits must be secured in advance but don’t worry we can sort out the skip permit from the council on your behalf.

Keep in mind that skips that are left on the road must not block neighbours’ access, utility access or junctions.


You can place all kinds of materials inside your skip, such as furniture, garden waste general mixed and non-toxic waste but you can’t put asbestos, gas cylinders, hazardous waste and chemicals in. These items require careful disposal and shouldn’t be mixed with general waste inside your skip – we’ll make sure that you’re fully briefed on this when you order.


All skips, provided for skip hire in Liverpool, include our company name, logo and contact details.

If you’re leaving your skip on the road, GSH make sure your skip meets regulations by putting reflective markings on or around it. Safety lamps will also make your skip more visible – alerting other road users to its presence, and this is something that we take care of, leaving you with one less job to do.

At GSH, we are always on hand to guide and advise you, so if you need to know more about general skip hire regulations in Liverpool and the surrounding area call us on 0151 424 4079 today.
