Builders Skip Bin (Bulk Rubbish Container)

Building site bulk rubbish containers will require an Asset Protection Permit APP02 to occupy a road as part of building works or a building site under Part 4 of the Hume City Council General Local Law No. 1 and the Road Management Act 2004.  When placing a bulk rubbish container on the nature strip, you are required to comply with the following guidelines.

  • The container must be of a solid walled construction with lockable lid.
  • The company business name and business phone number must be clearly marked on the skip bin.
  • Reflective tape and delineations must be on all containers along with a flashing yellow light to be placed on the roadside corner of the container.

Please note

  • A siting plan of the proposed location of the container must accompany all applications.
  • Supply evidence of a current Public Liability Insurance policy in the sum of $20 million indemnifying Council from liability associated with or arising out of placement and management of the bulk rubbish containers within Hume City must accompany all applications.
  • Issued permits are valid for 12 months from the date issued.
  • Application and assessment fee for a builder skip bin is $465.

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 to the bin owner.

Penalties for not complying with the Local Law and Road Management Act 2004 may include an on-the-spot infringement, or if warranted the company may be summoned to appear at a Magistrates Court.
