Placing your skip on private land, such as a driveway or in your garden, does not require a permit. If, however, you require the skip to be placed on public land (such as the road outside your home or a footpath), then you will require a permit. At Farwell’s we do the paperwork for you, but please remember to schedule in approximately 7 working days for your permit to be approved and arranged.


At Farwell’s, we know that it is not always practical for you to have a skip on site, so why not make use of our wait and load service? A low-cost alternative to skip hire, our wait and load services do not require any permits and are great when you need to dispose of your waste in a hurry. Our skip hire lorries simply arrive at a time to suit you, then load and dispose in a quick and responsible manner.

If you’re unsure about what size of skip you may require or need advice on what you can put in it please take a look at our FAQ’s below:
Generally, you can hire one of our skips for 1 – 2 weeks but we can accommodate longer hiring periods depending on your individual requirements. Please remember that if you’re placing your skip on a public highway you will need us to arrange a permit for you. As we are fully licensed and registered waste carriers with the council we can do this on your behalf.
We recommend booking your skip in advance as we may need to apply for a permit. If the skip is going on private property we can sometimes provide same day or next day delivery, depending on availability and time of booking. We can provide you with an AM or PM slot and someone will need to be in to accept delivery.
If placing the skip on a public road then you will need a permit. We need up to 7 days to arrange this from the local authority. Most skip hire permits are valid for up to 2 weeks but can be extended for an additional cost.
When filling your skip, you should be mindful of what you are putting in it as there are certain items which you can’t put in it. This includes food and animal waste, liquids, electrical goods (TV’s fridges etc), plasterboard, asbestos, batteries, tins of paint, tyres, medical waste, gas cylinders, solvents and fuels. You can dispose of soil and rubble in our skips but we need to be notified at time of booking due to the weight.


We deliver skips across a wide area from our site in the New Forest. Please see our coverage map below. Don’t worry if your location is not listed, this doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t deliver a skip to you. Please call the office for advice and for an instant quote over the phone.
