Skip permit

We recommend that a skip hire company makes your application for a skip permit.

Skip hirers will normally apply for skip permits on behalf of their customers as this alleviates the need for the customer to arrange their own Public liability Insurance, which Angus Council has set a minimum indemnity limit of £5 million per incident arising. The permit holder is fully accountable for any incidents resulting from the skip.


Applications for a skip permit should be submitted at least five working days before desired commencement date.


Skip permit charges fall into separate categories - traffic sensitive & non traffic sensitive. The monthly charges are shown below:

From 1 April 2021:

  • £55.75 per month non-traffic sensitive
  • £107.75 per month traffic sensitive.
