Is a permit needed for skip bins in Thomastown?
Thomastown is governed locally by the City of Whittlesea, which has strict policies about the placement of skip bins on public land. The maximum permit duration for this area is five days, and the application for the permit needs to be made five working days before the permit is required.
If you can locate the skip bin entirely on your own private land, you won’t need a permit. You will need a permit in every other case. We recommend to make your best effort to ensure the bin can be placed on your own land, if possible, as it will save money and time.
When a permit is needed, it’s helpful to know that skip bin permits are not automatically granted just because the fee has been paid, and the fee is non-refundable even if the permit is not awarded. It’s rare for a permit not to be granted, but in such cases it is usually because the council has determined that the proposed location is not a safe place to locate a skip bin.
We can help, so call us on 131-546 if you will need to locate your skip bin on public land, so we can start the process to get the permit for you.
How to use a skip bin
There are certain rules you need to follow when you hire a skip bin. This is to ensure you are complying with the law, and for your own safety.
The most important thing to know is you can’t burn anything in a skip bin. The law is very strict about this because of the fire risk, potential pollution concerns, and the dangers that can arise. Besides that, if you make a fire in the bin, you could damage it, and you’d then be liable for the costs of repairing it.
There are also some items that are prohibited from being disposed of by placement in a skip bin or even in ordinary household waste disposal. This refers to any items that could be classified as hazardous waste, such as:
- Medical and biological waste
- Fluorescent tubes
- Toxic metals
- Explosives, firearms and ammunition
- Electronics and electrical appliances
- Flammable liquids
- Flammable gases
- Solid combustible fuels
This is just a partial list. If you need advice, or you need to dispose of any hazardous substances, contact Jim’s on 131-546.
