How to get a skip bin permit in the City of Banyule
Banyule skip bins for homes and businesses
Residents living in the City of Banyule can book up to 2 hard rubbish collections per calendar year. However, you can only get rid of up to 1 cubic metre of rubbish, or a standard trailer load, or 1 mattress and 1 base.
There is also a limit as to which kind of waste you can get rid of. For example, the Banyule Council won’t collect green waste, or building materials. With so many caveats, it can be hard to get rid of all the excess rubbish on your site. That’s where WM Waste Management Services comes in.
We provide a range of skip bins for hire to any suburb within the Banyule Council, so you can get rid of your rubbish whenever you want. We can also help you get a permit for your skip bin, so you are compliant with council regulations and can avoid the risk of fines.

If you plan on placing your skip bin on council property (including footpaths, roads, or any council-owned land) you need to apply for a skip bin permit. At WM Waste Management, we can obtain a skip bin permit for you, so you can avoid the (often) complicated application process.
When you’re ready to hire a skip bin, get in touch with our team at WM Waste Management. We’ll let you know the first steps you need to take to get a permit, and advise you on which skip bin suits your situation.

What are my responsibilities when hiring a skip bin in Banyule?
If you obtain a skip bin permit in the City of Banyule, you’ll need to remain compliant with the council’s regulations. These include:
- Placing bins in accordance with the Vic Roads Guideline for Placement of Skips on Roadsides
- Skip bins cannot interfere with pedestrians or traffic flow, be placed in right of ways or lanes, or be placed in time restricted parking areas
- If the skip bin is placed on public land between sunset and sunrise, it must have reflective safety tape on it
A Banyule City skip bin permit is only valid for 7 days, and will need to be renewed if you plan on keeping a bin on council property for longer than this period of time.
