  2. Summary

    If you are registered with us you can place skips within Manchester providing the address pays either council tax or business tax to Manchester City Council check which council.

    There are 2 types of skip processes:- 

    • Skips with restrictions – if you want to place a skip in a restricted area or location (see terms and conditions and maps), you need prior approval from us - these need 10 days notice. Once approval has been given you then need to apply for a skip permit; or 
    • Skips in all other areas. It is the responsibility of the skip operator to apply for the permit and not the householder. If the skip is to be placed on a driveway, private land or garden a skip permit is not required.
    •  

    Skip permits are valid for a maximum of 7 days.

    If a skip is placed on the highway without a permit or in breach of any of the conditions, we may remove the skip and recover any reasonable expenses incurred from the owner of the skip.
