Commercial waste collection
Our commercial waste collection service is available to non-residential users including offices, shops and industrial premises.
Business owners in general CBD areas have the option for more frequent collections such as weekly recycling (yellow bin) and organics (green bin) pickups and twice weekly garbage (red bin) collections. In all other areas, garbage is collected fortnightly and recycling fortnightly in line with standard waste collection days.
Commercial bins are colour-coded and fitted with a microchip which allows the collection truck to record the identity of the business, along with the time and date of the collection. Businesses are sent quarterly tax invoices based on the number of times their bins were emptied that quarter, plus an availability charge.
