Skips placed on any public road, footway or footpath in East Ayrshire require a skip license in accordance with the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 (Section 85). It is the responsibility of the skip owner or company providing the skip to obtain this license.
Any skips placed on the road prior to obtaining a license or after a valid license has expired are placed illegally and subject to a fixed penalty.
All skip licenses issued by East Ayrshire Council have a maximum duration of 4 calendar weeks. Should you wish to extend this period then a new license application must be made.
A skip must be clearly marked with the owner's name and address or telephone number. You must comply with any conditions attached to the license as set out by East Ayrshire Council.
