ARE PERMITS REQUIRED FOR SKIP BINS IN MITCHAM?
If you’re able to locate the skip bin on your own land that you privately own, then you won’t need a permit. This is a really good thing, saving time, money, and stress. Whenever it is possible, it’s always best to attempt to make sure there’s room on your own property.
Sometimes it may not be possible, and then you’ll need to site the bin on public land. In this case a permit is necessary. The fee for 2019 is $47.40 (subject to change at any time), and the permit is good for 1 to 3 days (no extension possible).
When you apply for a permit, you need to provide a detailed sketch of the proposed location site. If your location is likely to “affect pedestrian or vehicular traffic”, you’ll also need to include a traffic control plan. The application needs to be made at least 10 working days in advance of when you require the permit to be available, and the application fee is non-refundable.
There are additional requirements compared to typical city councils around Australia, including:
- You need to ensure the area around the skip bin has lighting to illuminate the bin. If this is not already there, you’ll need to add it. You may also need to erect barriers and warning signs. This is definitely not typical.
- You need to ensure the safety of the public, including (and this is the unusual part) “to do all things necessary to prevent accidents or injury to persons”. The problem with this kind of wording is that it implies you’re responsible for everybody’s safety around the site at all times while the bin is there, even if they injure themselves in some way that is not related to the location of your skip bin.
Getting the permit is not normally too difficult in this area, but there is no way to be 100% sure it will be granted, and given that it’s non-refundable and comes with all these extra conditions it is very easy to see why it’s much better if you can possibly site the bin on your own property.
