If you have a skip for renovation or landscaping material that include heavy waste the skip will be heavy. This makes the risk of marking your driveway greater.The nature of your driveway will also depend on whether or not a skip will damage it.  Some customers have concrete driveways, brick driveways, paved or gravel driveways.  It is entirely up to the customer as to where they decide to place the skip.
