Even if you have a council permit to place a skip bin on the street, you cannot put the bin where it would impede traffic. Most areas require that you leave at least three metres of clear pavement for drivers. Check with your local council to ensure you comply with placement regulations.
Be courteous of your neighbours and use common sense when placing your skip bin. Do not place the bin where it would interfere with your neighbour’s daily life. If you live in a cul-de-sac, you will likely need to obtain permission from all home owners in your location before placing a skip bin there.
Skip bins, especially larger models, can easily interfere with utility lines and drains. Ensure that your bin does not block water drainage points, especially if your project takes place during a rainy time of year. Also, consider whether your skip bin placement could prevent authorities from accessing utility lines and poles.
Once your bin is delivered, it should stay in that location until the next collection. If you have issues with the current spot and have an ongoing agreement, ask us to move the bin after the collection. Do not attempt to move the bin yourself. Not only could you cause property damage to your home or vehicle, but you could also physically endanger yourself, other members of your household or your neighbours.
