Control of Skips Bye-Laws 2015 will be implemented from 2nd October, 2017

Waterford City and County Council adopted the Control of Skips Bye-Laws 2015 on 10th February, 2016 in respect of the regulation and control of skips on public roads within the administrative area of Waterford City and County Council. The provisions of these bye-laws will be implemented from 2nd October, 2017.

The bye-laws introduce new measures for both Skip Operators and Skip Hirers in relation to the placing of skips on public roads/footpaths.

Skip Operators
From 2nd October 2017 any Skip Operator who provides skips for hire and/or for use on any public road within the City and County of Waterford must be registered with Waterford City and County Council and have a valid Skip Operator’s Licence which must be applied for annually. Application forms and full details of fees and conditions can be downloaded on http://www.waterfordcouncil.ie or by contacting the Customer Services Desk at Baileys New Street, Waterford or Civic Offices, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.

Skip Hirers
From 2nd October 2017 any Hirer of a skip may not cause a skip to be placed on any public road within the City and County of Waterford without a skip permit. An application form to place a skip on a public road or footpath must be completed and submitted to the Council for assessment prior to the delivery of a skip.

Where it is intended to place a skip on a public road where pay parking is in operation, a fee equal to the sum of the parking charges current at the date of issue of the Skip Permit, plus an administration charge, is payable. An administration charge is payable to place a skip on a public road other than a road where pay parking is in operation. Application forms and full details of fees and conditions can be downloaded on www.waterfordcouncil.ie or by contacting the Customer Services Desk at Baileys New Street, Waterford or Civic Offices, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.
