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.

Bin Collections

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).

Damaged Bins

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.

Missed Bins

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.

    Bacchus Marsh collections are undertaken Monday through to Friday. Ballan collections are undertaken each Monday and in rural areas; collections are undertaken on the same day as your garbage collection.

  • Does Council hire skip bins?

    No, Council does not have skip bins. Residents should contact a local service provider to arrange for the hire of a skip.

  • What if my bin has not been fully emptied?

    The full contents of a bin may not be emptied during the collection process if the bin has been overfilled, objects forced inside, or wet contents such as greenwaste have been placed in the bin.
