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 :
Tel: 811811 / 811847

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