In some circumstances it is not possible for a skip bin or container to be delivered onto private property. Where there is no other alternative for placement of a skip bin or container other than public land, permission must be obtained before delivery.
The placement of mini skips, waste bins and shipping containers on Council land or roads may potentially cause a safety risk to the public if placed incorrectly.
All applications are assessed by location, taking into consideration the road width and kerb availability at the proposed delivery location. Some locations may not be appropriate and applicants may need to investigate other options to conduct their activity.
What are the costs?
Non-refundable application fee of $78.00.
Permit fee of $11.00 per day.
An extension of duration of permit $29.00 (administration fee plus permit fees per day for extension duration).
What you need to know
You will need to supply the following information with your application 15 days before the permit is required:
- Certificate of Currency showing public liability insurance with public risk of twenty million dollars ($20,000,000).
- Site plan of proposed location.
Authorisations will be issued for the period of placement of the waste or storage container on the road or footpath or for a period of seven days, whichever is the lesser.
Where an extension of the authorisation is sought, payment of an additional authorisation fee will need to be made before an extension will be granted.
All required information must be lodged with the Council before the application will be considered.
How to apply
What happens next?
A review of your application and supporting documentation will be considered within 7 to 14 business days of it being received.
On approval of the application, a permit fee will be advised which is to be paid before the permit is issued.
