Skips in St Helier

The Parish would not usually permit skips to be placed in St Helier within the ring-roads. However, each situation is considered on it's merits.


The Parish expects any skips placed on a public highway to:


-          be placed on a bed of plywood or timber bearers to ensure there is no damage to the road surface;

-          be surrounded by cones (with reflective sleeves) on their outer edges and lamps to warn road users; and

-          have a  plastic cover that can be tied down over  it to prevent it becoming a litter ground or items being removed.


Permission must be obtained by speaking with the St Helier Parish Street's Inspector :

Further advice: Companies who hire skips  should be able to offer advice.
