What you need to know about hiring a Skip Bin in Melbourne
Council rules and regulations can be difficult to understand, but costly to get wrong. We make hiring a skip bin easy. That’s why we’ve broken down the local and state regulations for skip bin hire into three simple things: the location of your bin, the contents of your bin and the capacity of your bin.
The location of your bin
Where you intend to place your bin will determine whether or not you require permission from your local council to do so. Skip bins on private property do not require approval from the council. As long as the bin will not block or interfere with any public land or pathways then you are free to keep the bin on your property as long as you need. If you do intend to locate your skip bin completely or partially on public land, then you will need to seek the approval of your local council. Placing a skip bin on public land without council approval can result in financial penalties. Each council has their own unique process and requirements for this approval. We recommend that you begin this application as early as possible to ensure you have time to receive approval before your project begins.
The contents of your bin
What you intend to put in your bin is an important thing to consider. Not all rubbish can go in all types of bins. For example, green waste skips can only take organic waste, standard skips can’t take construction materials, but builder’s skips can. To find out more about which skip is right for which materials, check out what can & can’t go in.
While getting the right skip for the right waste is important, there are some materials that can’t be disposed of in a rubbish skip. Local and state laws prohibit the dumping of hazardous and harmful materials in skips. Examples of prohibited hazardous waste includes:
- Asbestos or construction materials that contain asbestos
- Car tyres
- Electrical appliances (electric stove, freezer, dishwasher, computer, and television etc)
- Fluorescent light bulbs
- Medical waste (needles, syringes etc)
- Petrol, solvent, and paint
The capacity of your bin
The capacity of your bin is an important thing to keep in mind when renting a skip. Melbourne road laws prohibit the transportation of any uncovered skip bins. We are therefore unable to pick up any of our bins that have been filled beyond the capacity of the container. It is important that you do not overfill your bin or have any items protruding beyond the rim of the container. If you do, we will need to remove those items and return for a second trip at your cost. To avoid incurring such additional costs, we highly recommend choosing a skip size larger than you anticipate to account for any additional waste that may be created during your project.
