How to hire a skip bin if you live in the City of Whitehorse
Skip Bin Hire in the City of Whitehorse
Residents living in the City of Whitehorse Council can book up two hard rubbish collections in a year. But what happens if you’ve already used your allocated times, and you have more rubbish to get rid of?
There are council regulations surrounding the use of skip bins, particularly if you are looking place them outside of your private property. It can be hard to navigate the permit application process, but at WM Waste Management Services, we can help.
We’ve been providing skip bins for hire in the City of Whitehorse for years, and we understand the council permits inside and out. If you have any questions, get in touch with our friendly team, and we’ll be more than happy to help.
How do I know if I need a Council permit?
City of Whitehorse Council permits are only issued to skip bin contractors who are accredited with the council. Non-accredited skip bin contractors and residents cannot place skip bins on a road or public Council-owned land.
You don’t need a permit if you’re planning on placing your skip bin in your driveway, front yard or backyard. You also don’t need a permit if you are placing skip bins on Council property. It’s the responsibility of the company providing you with the skip bin.
What are the different council permits in the City of Whitehorse?
Skip bin contractor companies need to apply for Skip Bin Accreditation. At WM Waste, we already hold this permit, and we’ve supplied a copy of the Certificate of Currency of our Public Liability Insurance. So, when you hire a skip bin through us, you don’t need to worry about unnecessary paperwork.
