Are permits required for skip bins in Redfern?
The local area is governed by the Sydney City Council. The council only requires permits for skip bins if they are located on public land. Provided that you have sited your skip bin entirely upon your own private land, you will not need a permit for your skip bin.
You also, in many cases, will not need a permit for placing a skip bin on public land. This is covered in the Waste Management Policy, Section 2, Part 1: Exemptions from approval, subpart C – “Placing a skip bin in a public place”, however, you will need to be sure that you meet the criteria for eligibility for that exemption.
The most important criteria to qualify for exemption from approval is that your location must be immediately adjacent to a residential single dwelling building. If the location does not match that description, you’ll need to apply for approval.
The maximum size of the bin you will be using must not be greater than 3.4m long and 1.7m wide. There is currently no height restriction indicated.
You also can only place the skip bin on public land if there is not sufficient space on your private land to place it. The maximum time you can place it on public land without a permit is 14 days, and no extensions are allowed, and only one skip bin can be placed per property.
Skip bins have to be “parked” in front of your property as though they were vehicles. This means you can’t park them on the sidewalk, and they must have reflectors or warning lights attached to the outer corners.
How to use a skip bin properly
Skip bins are very convenient and easy to use. You can dispose of almost anything in them, but there are some things that should never be placed in a skip bin. Here are a few of them:
- Explosives, firearms, and ammunition. These require special permission to handle, store, own, or transport. There is no question that it is illegal to dispose of these items in a skip bin, and very dangerous, too.
- Medical waste or biological waste. You can’t dispose of these items in a skip bin unless it is in compliance with the applicable laws covering disposal of medical and biological waste.
- Most types of chemicals, especially if they are intended for industrial use. Examples include chlorine, acids of any kind, sodium hydroxide, etc.
- Batteries and fluorescent tubes. These items contain harmful toxins, in addition to possibly containing corrosive or explosive substances. These are not supposed to be disposed of in household or commercial waste and should be taken to a recycling centre.
- Reactive, toxic and/or radioactive metals and minerals. Examples include zinc, cadmium, lead, arsenic, antimony, uranium, plutonium, etc.
- Flammable liquids such as petroleum, kerosene, turpentine, etc.
You can throw most kinds of things into a skip bin (other than those listed above) without any kind of container or wrapping required, with the exception of wet substances (food, liquids), and anything that might be considered offensive if it can be seen by passers-by.
Finally, you should never try to burn anything in your skip bin. Sometimes people do things like this, and it can lead to very serious trouble. Not only can this action cause damage to the bin, but it also creates health risks and fire risks, in addition to being illegal.
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.
