Are permits required for skip bins in Barrack Point?
Barrack Point is governed locally by the City of Shellharbour. This local council isn’t very upfront about it’s skip bin policy, which can lead to frustration for members of the general public trying to get information about it.
We’ll save you the trouble by explaining the basics and also helping you when you need to obtain council approval. First thing to know is that if you can manage to locate the skip bin entirely within the boundary of your own private property, you won’t need any kind of official permit for it.
It’s only when your skip bin needs to be placed on public land that you’ll need to seek council approval. This involves payment of a fee and takes a few days while the council satisfies itself as to the safety of the proposed placement. When you need to place your skip bin on public land, we’ll assist you in obtaining the approval. Due to the time it takes and the fees involved, you should be sure to contact us well in advance of the date you’ll be needing the bin delivered to your Barrack Point property.
How to use a skip bin properly
The convenience a skip bin provides is a very good thing, but you do need to be careful to ensure you’re not throwing something in the bin that you’re not supposed to. There are some items that are restricted by law (and common sense) from being disposed of in this way. Some of them include:
- Explosives, firearms, and ammunition. Obviously items that require a police permit just to possess can’t be just thrown in the bin when you don’t want them any more. It’s also important to be aware that if somebody retrieved those items from the bin, you might be held liable for any damage they caused, and you could also face criminal prosecution for improperly disposing of restricted items.
- Medical waste or biological waste. The dangers created to the public from disposal of these items means they can only be transported in specially sealed containers and can only be disposed of at approved biowaste disposal sites. Normally any potentially infectious substances need to be incinerated.
- Chemicals, especially those that are labelled as toxic, corrosive, or highly reactive. Oxidisers, reducers, solvents, alcohols, petrochemicals, etc, are all examples of items that clearly can’t be disposed of by throwing in a bin due to the potential dangers to the community that could result.
- Batteries and fluorescent tubes. The toxins contained in these items (particularly mercury) are so harmful that it is strictly forbidden for them to be disposed of in any way other than taking them to an authorised collection centre.
- Flammable liquids such as petroleum, kerosene, turpentine, etc. The potential fire risk and the polluting nature of these substances means they can’t be disposed of in this way. They need to be taken to an authorised collection centre for disposal.
If you need to remove items that are in the “prohibited list” above, Jim’s can still help by removing the items separately (if safe and possible), or by referring you to specialists in the handling of the particular category of waste that needs to be removed. Call us on 131-546 if you have any questions or concerns. We are always happy to help.
