There is no doubt that skips can be stacked safely, and they are heavy enough that it would take a lot to move them when stacked correctly. But I'm not sure these have been well stacked.
When empty skips are stored in yards or transfer stations the height of the stack should be determined by its stability. Issues such as ground conditions, accessibility for the skip loader and safe access for an operative to attach and detach chains should be taken into account.
But these aren't in a skip yard, they are next to a public footpath.
It is such a bad location for a skip yard, especially when skips are stacked outside rather than inside.
Really? I don't remember it being there 20 years ago. I thought the site used to be managed by Network Rail.
I'm sure there is a better location in Forest Hill for such a business, rather than the heart of the town centre.
