Council Permits and Skip bins | The Rubbish Removers
|Do you need council permits for the skip bin?
Position is an important factor when ordering a skip bin! We prefer to put your bin inside your property line – either in the driveway, carport, garage or front yard. Our small “Lite bin” trucks can even put the bins into the back yard if you have driveway access.
Placing the skip bin closer to the rubbish will make it easier for you – less distance and effort carrying the junk to the skipbin and less chance of someone doing a drive by and popping a little extra in. (or taking something out!)
However if you cannot have the skip bin inside your property the drivers are able to locate the bins on public land like the footpath, bordering parkland or easements. Local councils have varying regulations about where they allow you to position the bin and you may be required to apply for a temporary permit.
Check with your local council regarding your specific requirements – Phone and website contacts are –

If you don’t have a suitable place for the skip bin to be parked for a while we can do a Rubbish Load and Go service – We work out a day and time frame suitable with you and the driver comes by and loads the bin. (you are welcome to help him- it may save you some money!)
Pricing is the same as our “Fill to Level” skip bins – you are paying for the rubbish volume and that includes 30 mins of drivers load time. If it takes the driver (and you, if you are helping) longer then 30 mins to load an additional surcharge is payable. Payment needs to be made prior to the driver leaving the site.
