Is a permit needed for skip bins in Hallam?
Hallam is locally governed by the City of Casey. The best thing you can do is make sure your skip bin can be located entirely on your own privately owned land, and in this way you will avoid the need for a permit, saving you time and money.
Sometimes it simply isn’t possible to fit a bin on your property, and in this case you’ll need to place it on what the council refers to as “public land”. This includes the road verge (or “nature strip”), the portion of your driveway that crosses the sidewalk, and the road itself. It’s not normally possible to situate a skip bin on a sidewalk in Victoria because that could create an obstruction or danger to pedestrians.
With help from Jim’s, getting a permit is not too difficult. The council simply wants some assurance that your bin will be located safely and within the safety guidelines set out by Vic Roads, and also complying with certain other council requirements including the requirement for public liability insurance.
Jim’s is very experienced in dealing with local councils and we have more than enough insurance to meet their approval, so most of the time, except in unusual cases, it is a simple process. The special cases are situations like where your property is located in a particularly busy area with congested traffic and limited parking, when your property is close to an intersection, and when your property is very close to a public building such as a school or hospital.
How to avoid problems when hiring a skip bin
The first thing to know is that it’s always a good idea to reserve a skip bin well in advance of when you expect to need it. That’s because skip bins are in high demand and there are often not enough bins available for everyone who wants to hire one on a particular day (especially at weekends and during holiday periods). To make sure you don’t miss out, call 131-546 and reserve your skip bin as early as you can.
Next, there are some things that you should not do with a skip bin that can get you into trouble if you do them. One especially important thing you should never do is burn anything in a skip bin, because this is not lawful and also can damage the bin. You’d have to pay for the costs of fixing the damage and you might also get into trouble with the local fire authorities and the council.
It’s also not permitted to dispose of hazardous waste in a skip bin, except where you have special permission and the necessary expertise to deal with the items.
Examples of things you can’t normally dispose of in a skip bin include:
- Electrical and electronic products
- Flammable liquids
- Flammable gases
- Fluorescent tubes
- Medical waste
- Solid combustible fuels
- Toxic metals
This may not necessarily be a complete list of everything that can’t be disposed of in a skip bin, so if you have any doubts at all, give us a call and we’ll advise you. It’s certainly much better than finding out you’ve done the wrong thing later, as the penalties can be severe.
For any questions or to make a reservation for skip bin hire, call us on 131-546.
