What you need to know before hiring a skip bin in the Knox City Council area
Knox City Council bin hire for homes and businesses
Like all other councils in Melbourne, Knox City Council requires that people hiring a skip bin obtain proper permits before they start throwing trash away.
While residents can apply for their own skip bin placement permit, it is much easier to work with one of the local accredited businesses that already have their own permits in place.
WM Waste Management Services is one such business. By hiring skip bins of any size through us, you don’t have to worry about navigating the bureaucratic processes of Knox City Council.
Get a permit for skip bins in Knox City Council
There are two separate types of skip bin hire permits for Knox City Council available to residents:
- A one off placement permit for infrequent bin suppliers
- Skip bin accreditation for multiple placements over a 12 month period
If you are looking for a one off placement permit for a skip bin you have hired, this will cost you around $90. However, when you book your skip through WM Waste, you only have to pay for the skip itself. We have already paid our yearly dues as an accredited waste business, so you don’t have to.
