Garbage collection Canberra – being aware of council regulations to avoid issues


In most areas of Canberra (or indeed throughout Australia) there are no restrictions on placement of bins. However, as central Canberra has quite different town planning to other Aussie cities, streets and access on pavements can be quite tight. For this reason, the local authorities have programmes in place to prevent excess bins and ensure pavements etc are left clear for pedestrians.


In this context – in built up commercial areas, the local government (Land Use Office) can put restrictions on the number of bins and type of bins that business can have – see link here. For example, we have worked with a client recently that had to reduce recycling bins and put more in general waste due to a lack of space available for recycling bins.


The important takeaway here for garbage collection Canberra – is to pick a reputable waste company who is aware of council restrictions and can ensure a smooth and reliable service.
