Skip bin permits

When do I need a permit?

If you are placing a skip bin on our land you will need a skip bin permit. Skip bin permits allow for a skip bin to be placed in a legal parking bay and where access is not restricted at any time.

If you want the bin to be positioned in a laneway, on a road or any location that restricts access you will need a Road/footpath occupation permit.

For laneway or road closures you will need too obtain a Traffic Management Plan and you must distribute a courtesy letter to affected residents seven days prior to the placement of the bin.

You can contact a skip bin company who will apply to us on your behalf to arrange a permit.

  • Payment for the permit will be a part of the cost the skip bin company will charge
  • The skip bin company must be registered with us before they can apply for a permit
  • We do not provide skip bins for hire
