Regulatory-Application to place a Bulk Waste Container (BWC) on a Public Road

If you wish to place a BWC, you should contact a BWC supplier who will advise you if they are registered with Council and can submit the application to Council on your behalf.

Council issues approval for BWCs to be placed on roadways including footpaths.  A BWC placed on private property does not require consent from Council.

Where possible BWCs should be placed on private property (approval will not be granted unless there is insufficient space on private property).

If you are not a registered supplier and wish to be, please complete a form via the link below and submit to Council or alternatively contact Council on 4974 2000.
