Council delivers a number of kerbside waste collections to existing and new households and businesses within the established collection areas and where there is sufficient demand. Council is committed to pursuing all affordable avenues for safer, environmentally friendly ways of dealing with our waste.
Commercial Garbage Collections
Council operates a weekly commercial waste collection service across the municipality. This service is non-compulsory and businesses in the established collection areas can opt in or out of a service at any time.
Please be aware that there are no collections on Christmas Day, New Years Day and Good Friday. Alternative collection dates will be advertised prior to those days.
Commercial Recycling Collections
Council does not provide a recycling service for commercial premises. Recycling can be disposed of at any of Council’s transfer stations free of charge.
Commercial Greenwaste Collections
Council does not provide a greenwaste service for commercial premises. Recycling can be disposed of at any of Council’s transfer stations at half the cost of the regular gate fee.
To ensure that your bin is collected on the scheduled collection day, please note the following:
- Bins should be placed near the kerb or roadside, facing the road, and placed no less than 1 metre apart
- Bins should be placed out for collection prior to 6.00am on your designated collection day. Late bins will not be collected
- Do not overfill or compact your bins as they may not be collected (Council’s contractor will not return for bins which are half emptied)
For a list of what should and shouldn’t be placed in your garbage and recycling bins, please see Council’s Waste Information Booklet (PDF, 5MB).
Where bins are under five years of age, Council will replace broken lids, wheels and pins on garbage or recycling bins free of charge. Repairs or replacements are undertaken from Monday to Friday. If your bin has been damaged, please Report a Damaged Bin.
Where bins have been placed out correctly and have been overlooked during collection, Council can arrange for the contractor to return to collect the bin as soon as is practical. If your bin has been missed, please Report a Missed Bin.
