Skip Bin Permits

Skip bin

A Council permit is required to place a skip container on road reserves (on a road, footpath, crossing, nature strip or lane) within the municipality.

How Do I Get A Skip Bin Permit?

Permits can only be issued to contractors who are accredited with Knox City Council. Please contact one of the accredited companies listed in the table below to obtain a skip bin permit.

A permit is not required if a skip bin is placed on private property.

Permits are valid for seven days and are subject to the general conditions for placement of skips on road reserves within the City of Knox.

  • Yearly permit, with an annual fee of $770.00, allowing the skip bin company up to and including 20 placements within the municipality, a fee of $20.00 applies for any bin placement in excess of the 20 allowed under the annual permit ; or
  • One-off placement permit, with a fee of $80.00 per placement.
  • In addition to the above fees an initial application fee is of $128 is also required.

Both methods require notification of placements to be forwarded to the Local Laws office on fax: (03) 9298 8252 at least 24 hours before placement.

Penalties for not complying with the Local Law may include an on the spot infringement of $300 or if warranted the company may be summonsed to appear at a Magistrates Court where the maximum penalty may be up to $1500.

Bins that do not comply with Council's Policy and that have been placed in a dangerous situation will be impounded by Council and all costs involved will be charged direct to the bin owner.
