Commercial waste services

Council offers garbage and recycling collection services for non-residential properties.

Standard commercial service

Council offers a weekly kerbside garbage and recycling collection service for non-residential properties.

The charge for this service is applied to the rates notice as an annual waste charge. The waste charge is set annually and based on the garbage bin size.

To arrange a standard weekly kerbside collection contact Council.

Commercial Plus service

The Commercial Plus service for garbage, recycling and food and garden organics service is available to businesses, schools, residential properties and organisations, including those not paying rates.

Commercial Plus services are invoiced bi annually, separately to the rates notice.

This service provides greater capacity than the weekly kerbside collection as customers can have as many mobile garbage bins as required to service the property requirements. 

Most, Commercial Plus bins have a 240 litre capacity, with a black body and red lid for garbage. In residential settings, other bin sizes are available and appear the same as the standard residential service.

The cost to collect each Commercial Plus garbage or recycling bin is set annually. The Commercial Plus fee for 2020-21 is $15.30 per bin per lift.
