Newcastle Skip Bin Placement Guide

Before you proceed with Newcastle skip bin placement on a public road, it’s essential to understand the regulations in place. Placing a skip bin on private property doesn’t require council consent, but road placement does. At Junkyard Skips, we ensure you’re informed and compliant with all necessary guidelines.

Newcastle Council Approval Process

Newcastle Council issues approvals for skip bin placement on roadways, including footpaths. The approval process typically takes around 72 hours, ensuring you can proceed with your waste management plans without unnecessary delays.

Duration and Limitations of Skip Bin Placement

Once approved, you can place the skip bin on the public road for a maximum of 28 days from the approval date. This provides you with ample time to complete your project without any rush.

Applying for a Temporary On-Street Parking Permit

In cases where you need to place a skip bin in a timed or restricted parking area, you’ll need to apply for a Temporary On-Street Parking Permit. This permit ensures that you have the necessary authorisation for skip bin placement.

Preferred Placement: Private Property

While skip bins can be placed on public roads, the preferred option is to put them on private property whenever possible. Adequate space on personal property reduces the need for council approvals and ensures a smoother process.

There is no associated fee if you have the space available on your property to accommodate the skip bin. This provides you with a cost-effective solution for waste disposal.
