If a skip bin is placed on within your property boundary, no permit is required. Skip bins placed in a public place such as the road or nature strip usually require a permit to be obtained prior to the placement of the skip bin. Each Council has different requirements, so it is important to check these details first. Failure to obtain a skip bin may result in a fine.
Council permit fees can be expensive so wherever possible it is best for the skip bin to be placed within the property boundary. It may be more economical to have two small bins within the property rather than one larger skip bin on public property.
Placing a skip bin on your own property also avoids other people placing rubbish in your bin. Brown Bros. Skip Bins has permits with most councils but most councils require the property owner to obtain and pay for the permit. You may also require a copy of our Public Liability Policy .
