Taunton is a town in Somerset, England, with a 2011 population of 69,570. Its 1,000 years of religious and military history includes a 10th-century monastery. Taunton Castle originated in the Anglo Saxon period and was later the site of a priory. The Normans built a stone castle that belonged to the Bishops of Winchester. Today’s reconstructed parts are the inner ward, housing the Museum of Somerset and Somerset Military Museum. Events include the Second Cornish uprising of 1497, when Perkin Warbeck marched a 6,000-strong army to Taunton, most of which surrendered to Henry VII on 4 October 1497. On 20 June 1685 the Duke of Monmouth crowned himself King of England at Taunton in a rebellion that culminated in the Battle of Sedgemoor. Judge Jeffreys lived in the town during the Bloody Assizes held in the Great Hall of the Castle. The Grand Western Canal reached Taunton in 1839 and the railway in 1842. Today it includes Musgrove Park Hospital, the Somerset County Cricket Club’s County Ground and the headquarters of 40 Commando, Royal Marines.

If you’re thinking about having your skip delivered onto the road or into a parking bay. You will need a permit from your local council. These are an additional cost to your skip hire but fluctuate in price from council to council.
They generally take 3-5 working days to obtain from the council though in some cases it can take a lot longer. In terms of how long you have one for, it can be from 1 day up to a month and can be reissued depending on how long you need them.
They’re very flexible and as long as you don’t need the skip in a rush is a great way to get your skip delivered wherever you want it!
The price to hire a skip varies depending on the type of waste going into the skip and the size of the skip you require. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to pay from £100 up to about £350 for a domestic skip in most cases.
Depending on the size of the work your undertaking will determine the size of the skip you need. A general rule of thumb is to divide the number of bin bags of rubbish you’ll generate by ten. For example, if you think you’ll generate 60 bin bags of waste you will require a 6-yard skip.
Items which are safe to place in a skip are household items such as wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper, cardboard, garden waste and fabrics. You can also place heavy materials such as bricks, rubble, concrete, stones, metal, pottery and clays.
