Is a permit required for skip bins in Altona?
Altona is part of the City of Hobson’s Bay, a large multi-suburb amalgamation in Melbourne’s west end, composed of Altona, Altona Meadows, Altona North, Newport, Seabrook, Seaholme, South Kingsville, Spotswood, Williamstown, Williamstown North, and parts of Brooklyn and Laverton.
Hobson’s Bay has a fairly relaxed policy when it comes to skip bins, and you’ll only need a permit if you’re not able to site the bin entirely within the boundary of your own private property (note that this does not include the portion of your driveway that crosses the sidewalk, nor the road verge or nature strip. The bin must be completely on the homestead side of the sidewalk, and not protruding in any way, or you will need a permit.
When you can’t fit the bin on your own land, or don’t want to, the alternative is to locate it outside of your property, and this is when it’s necessary to have a permit. Hobson’s Bay differs from many other councils around Victoria in that they are one of the few that allow parking of a skip bin on a nature strip. If you can do this, it is preferable to having it located on the roadway.
Hobson’s Bay City Council charges $60 for a three day permit, which is comparatively high. If you need it for longer than that, you’ll have to pay $30 per day, which is much higher than the average skip bin permit cost across the state or even across the nation.
This is why we definitely recommend that residents of Altona and the nearby areas should carefully plan ahead before hiring the skip bin, so you can be sure of having room for the bin on your own property. It just makes everything much easier and less expensive.
If you decide you want to go ahead and get a permit anyway, the application process is simple. The permit is not automatically granted, however. There is a process the council goes through to make sure the public won’t be unduly endangered or inconvenienced by the placement of the bin, and then they grant the permit. We can help if you need help with getting a permit.
Our number is 131-546. Call us to arrange for the hire of your skip bin, assistance with obtaining a permit, skip bin advice, or simply to ask a question. You are always assured of friendly service and personal attention at Jim’s.
