Commercial rubbish removal Sydney: if you need to arrange commercial waste and recycling services for your business, and you do not have experience of any of the major players ( or even if you do) it can be very difficult to compare the varying offers you are presented with. In this short blog we will run through a number of the questions you should seek to consider and ask your supplier before signing up to a contract.


In this regard we have published a consumers guide to waste management and recycling services – which you can access for free here.


Can the supplier provide all your waste services?


Not all providers can provide all the services you need to reduce cost and maximise recycling – helping the environment. Some general waste collectors can not do what is called wet waste – i.e. containing high amounts of food or organic mater.


Some suppliers may not offer recycling options like commingled recycling (for bottles or cans) or confidential paper (i.e. document destruction) or ancillary services such as grease trap. Waster provides all these services through our online waste shop for all services relating to commercial rubbish removal Sydney:



Do you need to sign a long term contract for commercial rubbish removal Sydney services?


Many providers will want you to sign a long term, exclusive contract for services ranging up to three years in length. If you sign a contract like this, it can be very tricky to get out of it – i.e. if service quality is poor or for many other reasons.


All Waster services are delivered on flexible 30 day agreements – so you do not need to worry about signing a long term contract again. See our terms and conditions here. We also provide an example of how this can work for waste services for cafes.


Are there hidden costs or will my rates increase significantly?


Many suppliers will quote an introductory low rate – and then charge additional unexpected charges such as environmental fees, site fees, rental fees for bins and numerous other charges. They may also increase rates multiple times per annum – you need to check the small print on this to ensure this does not happen. Otherwise an originally low cost service can end up being anything but over time.


Waster keeps costs low and you can check our rates in our online shop. Our rates are adjusted once a year (usually on 1st July).


Is there a rollover clause?


If you sign a long term contract, you need to be aware if there is a rollover clause – or what can be  known as an evergreen clause. This type of clause will basically mean the contract will roll on for many more years unless you provide notice in a small window that is noted in the original contract. Many customers forget about this clause and are surprised to find out the are tied to a supplier many years after they thought the contract expired.


With Waster – as all services are delivered on 30 day agreements you do not need to worry about this.
