How to dispose of your commercial 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. Dispose recyclables at any of the transfer stations free of charge.
Commercial greenwaste collections
Council does not provide a greenwaste service for commercial premises. Dispose recyclables at any of the 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:
- 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 6.00 am 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.
You can ask Council to replace broken lids, wheels and pins free of charge for bins less than 5 years old. Repairs or replacements are Monday to Friday.
Where bins have been placed out correctly and have been overlooked, Council can arrange for the contractor to return to collect the bin as soon as is practical.
