If you want to place a skip on land owned or managed by Nillumbik Shire Council you may need a permit.
The application for a skip bin permit should be completed by the waste business that is placing the skip.
You can apply for either a one-off skip permit, or an annual permit which covers 12 months.
Council land includes:
- local roads not maintained by VicRoads
- footpaths and nature strips
- parks, reserves and playgrounds.
If you don't have a permit, you may get a fine.
When you don't need a permit
You don't need a permit if your skip or bulk rubbish container meets all of the following requirements:
- has a capacity of 2.5 cubic metres or less
- fits on the nature strip without sticking out on the footpath or road
- does not obstruct vehicle or pedestrian traffic
- is placed for no more than 4 days in any one calendar month.
