Everything you need to know about skip bin hire in Boroondara Council

How to hire a skip bin if you live within the Boroondara council area

Councils offer hard rubbish collections periodically, but if you’ve missed the deadline, you’ll need to hire a skip bin. Before you do so, you need to understand the skip bin hire regulations in Boroondara.

You don’t need a permit when a skip bin is located on your private property

A permit is not required if the skip bin is located on your private property. This means that while you are filling your skip bin, if it is in your driveway, front garden, or backyard, you do not need a permit. But when you hire a company to pick up your rubbish, you may need to move it kerbside — this is council property and you will need to hire a permit.

Road and/or Footpath Occupancy Permits

This permit is required when you want to place storage or a skip bin on a road. These should only be placed on the road, street, or public places like reserves when there is not enough space the place the bin on the hirer’s site. The Boroondara council will approve a skip bin permit when the user has:

  • Made safety precautions for pedestrians who may pass by
  • The footpath, verge, and public assets are protected
  • Motor vehicles can pass through
  • Access to the area is not unreasonably obstructed

Notify tenants

To apply for this permit, you will need to let any other tenants and property owners know 2 days before you plan to place a skip bin on council land.

How to apply

You’ll need to submit an application through the Boroondara council. Within the application, you must include things like:

  • Where you plan to place your skip bin
  • What concessions have you made to ensure pedestrians and cars can pass through the area?
  • Certificate of Currency with public liability attached
  • A copy of a notification letter

How much does a permit cost?

  • A Road And/Or Footpath Occupancy permit: $281
  • Parking Bay Occupancy permit: $52
  • Use of a crane or travel tower: $145
