How to choose a skip bin for your waste needs in the City of Monash
How to hire a skip bin if you live within the Monash Council area
Monash Council collects hard rubbish one a year, usually between August and September. Outside of this, you need to order a hard rubbish collection through the council. However, the total amount of material you can place on the nature strip outside your home if 4 cubic metres.
If you need to use a skip bin outside of the Council service, you may need to apply for a permit. At WM Waste Management Services, we can help you with the permit process. We also hold our own permits within the Monash Council area, so when you hire a skip bin through us, you don’t need to worry about applying for permits or paying unnecessary fees.
How do I know if I need a Monash Council permit?
In the Monash Council, a skip bin permit is only necessary if you’re a company who supplies skip bins. Residents and contractors needn’t worry about applying for skip bin permits. Even if you plan on placing your skip bin on the road or Council-owned property, it’s not your responsibility to apply for a permit.
What are the different council permits in Monash Council?
The Monash Council has one permit for skip bins — Occupy Roadway (Skip Bins) permit. We’ve already obtained a permit for the Monash Council, including supplying a copy of a Certificate of Currency for our Public Liability Insurance.
Why choose WM Waste?
We’ve been helping to keep the streets clean in Monash Council for years now. We are a registered waste management provider, with the appropriate Council permits to perform safe and efficient waste removal in the suburbs within the Council area.
After you’ve hired a skip bin and filled it, we collect it and take it to our dedicated waste transfer and recycling facilities. Once there, the waste is sorted so that mattresses can be recycled, and other goods can go to a recycled goods store. And wood is repurposed as well. The aim is to ethically get rid of waste, and send the smallest amount possible to landfill.
How to choose the right skip bin for hire near you in Monash Council
You’ll need to assess how much waste you’re getting rid of, and what waste type it falls into. We sort our skip bins into:
- Light and mixed: Wood, plaster, tin, household items, and green waste
- Heavy: Concrete, soil, tiles, and brick
- Concrete: 100% concrete
- Dirt: 100% dirt
- Green waste: 100% green waste
For example, if you’ve just completed a big landscaping project, and need to get rid of a large amount of green waste, then our 100% green waste bin would be an ideal fit.
The only problem is, there is a limit as to what you can put out on the road. For instance, you can only get rid of two mattresses per household, and timber no longer than 1.5 metres long.
When you order a skip bin through a company like WM Waste Management Services, there’s no limit to the sizes (or number of) these things. The only types of waste we don’t collect are:
Skip bin sizes
We have skip bins and walk in bins for hire in a wide range of sizes, to suit your unique needs. We’ve got 2 cubic metre skips for smaller rubbish removal jobs, right up to bins with 23 cubic metre capacities.
