Businesses or commercial properties are NOT eligible for residential waste services.

However, Council provides a commercial waste service to ensure that all local businesses have access to a convenient and reliable garbage and recycling service.

Using Council's commercial waste service is optional; however, all businesses must have an appropriate service either from Council or private contractor.

Other Waste Services

Bin Trim

The NSW EPA’s Bin Trim Program provides free advice and support to businesses (with up to 400 staff) to help them identify and implement ways of cutting waste and potentially making cost savings.

Roughly 70% of the things in a business’ garbage bin can be reused or recycled. From cardboard, paper, and plastic through to food waste – so much of this ends up in the garbage bin, when it could be avoided, reused or recycled.

Minimising the amount of waste sent to landfill is not just good for the planet; it is good for business, helping to attract more customers by showing an environmental awareness, increase staff morale, gain recognition for actions taken, and reduce impact on the environment.

Businesses can contact their local Bin Trim Assessor to book a free Bin Trim waste assessment and see what they could save! They may also assess if businesses are eligible for a rebate between $1,000 and $50,000 to help with buying recycling equipment (up to 50% capital cost).

Alternatively, businesses can use the free Bin Trim tool to get a profile of their waste.

The Recyculator

Use the NSW EPA's Recyculator to calculate and communicate the benefits of large-scale recycling for businesses. This interactive online tool helps businesses measure recycling's wider benefits: energy and water savings, fewer greenhouse gas emissions and less waste going to landfill.
