How to get a skip bin permit in Nillumbik Shire Council
Nillumbik skip bin hire for homes and businesses
If you live within the Nillumbik Shire Council area, you can receive one free hard waste collection per financial year. The only problem is, there are strict limitations on how much rubbish you can get rid of, and how big items can be.
In Nillumbik, you are only allowed to dispose of 2 cubic metres of waste in total. You can book extra collections, but at an additional cost. The council won’t collect items like household garbage or batteries, as well as green waste and soil.
At WM Waste Management Services, we provide a huge range of skip bin sizes, with bins dedicated to specific types of waste. There is greater flexibility in what you can get rid of in these bins, so you needn’t worry about measuring and weighing your rubbish. Get a quick quote to find out which bin serves your needs.
Get a skip bin permit in Nillumbik Shire Council
If you want to place a skip bin on a road or public land, you’ll need to submit an application for a skip bin permit. On the application form, you’ll need to indicate the address of where the skip bin will be placed, as well as:
- What type of rubbish you are looking to place in the skip
- The size and number of bins
- Proposed placement date and collection date
There may be other hoops to jump through, but we can help. At WM Waste, we are highly experienced at working with local councils to ensure skip bins are correctly placed on public land.
What are my responsibilities when I hire a skip bin in Nillumbik?
Once your skip bin permit is approved, you will need to remain compliant with the council’s rules and regulations. Your bin cannot:
- Obstruct the passage of vehicles and pedestrians
- Obscure the vision of motorists or present a physical hazard
- Contravene the visibility of traffic control signs
You’ll also need to ensure you place hazard lights securely on the side of the skip nearest traffic so drivers can see the bin clearly at night.
