Do I Need a Permit For My Skip Bin?

If youโ€™re placing your skip bin on your own property, you donโ€™t need a permit. If your skip bin is placed outside your property boundary on public land you will need a permit. Public land includes footpath, nature strip & road.

The method of obtaining these permits & the associated costs varies from council to council, so we recommend that you check with your local council. However, here is a basic rundown of permit requirements for some ofย the major cities in Australia.

๐— ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ป๐—ฒ โ€“ In most council areas, the permit must be attained from your skip bin operator, which can only be done if they are registered with that particular council. However in the CBD, a customer may obtain the permit themselves.

๐—ฆ๐˜†๐—ฑ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜† โ€“ In some areas, skip bin operators buy an annual permit that will cover them for placement so customers donโ€™t need to worry obtaining one themselves, however in other areas, the customer must apply for the permit themselves. Just to make things a little more complicated, in other areas, skips up to a certain length & width that meet requirements with regard to markings can be placed in the street without a permit for a certain period of time.

๐—”๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ โ€“ Nice & easy, permits are required for all suburbs & must be obtained by the customer.

๐—•๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฒ โ€“ In most areas, a skip can be placed on the nature strip or footpath without a permit as long as there is sufficient space left for pedestrians to pass safely without having to walk on the road, however skips cannot be placed on the road.

๐—ฃ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ต โ€“ In inner suburbs, a permit is normally required & obtained by the customer.

๐—ก๐—ฒ๐˜„๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ โ€“ Permits are needed for Newcastle City Council areas & are obtained by the skip bin operator. However, in Lake Macquarie, permits are not required.
