When do you need a licence/permits?

A roro licence or sometimes called a skip permit may be required if the roro/skip is located on a public highway. Wasteology can apply to the appropriate local authority. All waste materials are treated at our waste transfer station where recycling is optimised when processed through our material recovery facility.

Things to remember

1. Ensure Adequate Access

In addition to making sure that the skip is the correct size for the skip itself, you also need to make sure that there is adequate access for the lorry to drop off and collect your RoRo skip.

2. Ensure The Skip Is Placed In A Safe Location

Please remember that skips cannot be located directly below trees. Additionally, unlike ‘regular skips’ which require a permit to be placed on a public highway, RORO skips cannot be placed on public highways for any reason.

3. Ensure Waste Is Suitable

It is important to remember that you are legally responsible for the contents inside the RORO skip. This means that in addition to ensuring that the waste is suitable and complies with out terms and conditions, it must also not be
overloaded; as an overloaded skip is a hazard. In the event of an overloaded skip, our lorry drivers reserve the right to remove excess waste from the RORO, or refuse to remove the RORO skip (which may incur a wasted journey charge).
