Do I Need a Council Permit for a Skip Bin in Newcastle?

If your skip bin is to be placed on the street, nature strip or public area you will need a permit to hire a skip bin for general waste in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. The local council issues this permit and ensures that your skip bin is placed in an appropriate area. The cost of the permit will vary depending on the location of the bin and how long it needs to be kept on site (if it is to be placed in a timed or metered parking space). It is important to check with the specific local council or relevant authorities in Newcastle or Lake Macquarie to determine the exact requirements and fees associated with obtaining a permit for a skip bin. They will provide you with the necessary information and guidelines to ensure compliance with local regulations. 1300 Skip Bins can also assist you with any information you required regarding skip bin council permits.

What Goes in a General Waste Skip Bin?

Kinds of waste that can be put into a general waste skip bin include furniture, clothing, paper, plastic packaging, glass, timber and other materials.

How to Choose the Right Size Skip Bin?

Choosing the right size skip bin for your needs is an important step in ensuring that you are disposing of your rubbish in the most efficient way possible. As a general rule, it is recommended that you overestimate the amount of waste that you will be disposing.

If you are planning on getting rid of a small amount of household waste, then the 3m3 skip bin may suffice. However, if there are more than expected amounts of refuse, opting for a larger 4m3 skip bin might be better. It’s important to understand what can and cannot be put in your bin so that it doesn’t become full too quickly or exceeds any weight restrictions. Generally, waste can include non-hazardous materials such as paper, cardboard packaging, furniture items, and even garden clippings. Having a reliable skip hire service can help manage large amounts of general household waste by efficiently collecting them from your premises.
