Commercial Waste Collections

Local businesses now have a more convenient, flexible, reliable and fully comprehensive waste collection & recycling service, helping our customers to save money and recycle more of their waste.

Our Service


We offer both general waste and brown organics collections as part of our commercial waste service.


You can choose a weekly, fortnightly or monthly service depending on your needs and there is also a choice of bin size.

Please note all organic waste (food and garden waste) must now be separated from your trade waste receptacle and placed in a brown bin.  By keeping organic waste out of your existing bin, Council can achieve low waste treatment costs and reduce waste to landfill.

The items that can be recycled in the brown bins:

  • Food waste

  • Fruit

  • Flowers

  • Meat - raw/cooked

  • Teabags/coffee

  • Leaves/plants
