Do I Need a Permit for My Skip Bin Hire?

Whеthеr or not уоu nееd a реrmіt for skip bin hire bin will gеnеrаllу hіngе оn оnе question: Where will the skip bin be placed?

In general, a permit will be required in most cases. In particular, if the skip is to be placed on public property such as on the street.

The general process of seeking a permit may vary from council to council. Each council may have their own unique set of requirements. This is from fees associated with skips to where the bin must be positioned. In addition, this is for all dwelling types such as homes, apartments or townhouses.

Before you hire a skip bin, it is important to make an informed decision based on knowing the different types and sizes available.

Council Permit Considerations

In applying for a council permit, the general information that will be requested is:

  • Information on why the skip is required
  • Where the skip will be positioned
  • The duration of the skip bin on the public property
  • The skip bin provider
  • The type of skip bin – Marrel or Hook Bins

General Skip Bin Information

  1. Marrel
  2. Hook

In most cases, household waste is more suitable for Marrel’s. On the other hand, Hook’s are for larger scale jobs. The prime difference between them (apart from the size range) is the way in which they are accessed and lifted on/off a truck.

Selecting thе ѕіzе and type is also important in determining collection requirements to avoid bins filling beyond capacity and imposing any safety hazards. It is important to note that bins that are filled above the rim will not be collected.
