Construction waste (skip bins)

When you need to hire a waste container for construction waste and it cannot fit within your property boundaries, you must obtain a permit to place the bin on Council's roads and footpaths.

To obtain a permit, you should first arrange hire of your bin from one of the approved companies who have registered with Council, and then contact Council and pay any permit fees applicable.

Please select your suburb to continue:

Choosing and placing the bin

  • A waste container should only be placed on a Council footpath in instances where:
    • it is not possible (due to a severe lack of space) to store waste products upon private property; AND
    • it is not possible to place a waste container on the roadway (as a result of it not being legal to park a motor vehicle on the street outside the premises).
  • A waste container can only be placed on a footpath or other public place where it is possible, at all times, to maintain a completely unobstructed pedestrian access way, of at least 1.5m in width, between the property boundary and the waste container.
  • The maximum size for a waste container placed on a footpath or other public place is 3.6m long × 1.5m wide × 1.5m high.
  • A waste container should only be placed on a roadway where parking restrictions (or other Australian Road Rules) do not restrict the stopping or parking of a motor vehicle (including 'No Stopping', 'No Standing' and 'No Parking' areas).
  • The maximum size for a waste container placed on a Council road or public carpark is 4.8m long x 1.8m wide x 1.5m high.
  • Permission must be obtained from NSW Roads and Maritime Services for the placement of a waste container on the roadway along a State Road.

Please consider others and place the waste container as close to your property as possible.

Fees for July 2016 – June 2017

A permit for 7 days (or less) is free and can be obtained quickly online.

Permits for more than 7 days cost $96.50 per week (including GST) and an application form to be completed. Payment must be received by Council before the permit can be issued. These fees are current for the 2016–17 financial year.

Apply for a permit

Once you've arranged hire of your bin from one of the approved companies listed above, you can apply online for a skip bin permit through Council’s website:

If you need to apply for a permit for longer than 7 days, please phone Council on 02 9392 5000.
