Commercial rubbish removal: as a private commercial business or organisation such as a school, hospital or charity etc – you will likely have to organise your own waste services and recycling. Some council areas continue to provide waste services to business (often referred to as trade waste) – for example see the pages from Woollahra council in Sydney metro region.  If your council does provide this service to you, it can be the most cost effective option for smaller businesses. As you can see from this page however, the services offered can be limited i.e. focusing on smaller bin sizes and with limited waste streams – for example, the Woollahra council only provides services up to 660 litre bin sizes. Check out our article on which is the right wheelie bin size for your business. This bin size will be too small for many businesses.


Unfortunately many councils are also phasing out their low cost trade waste collection services and are not accepting new customers – this will mean you will need to engage a third party commercial rubbish removal company. As per the City of Sydney council website it states:


“Business council rates do not cover waste and recycling collections. Residential properties receive these collections because their rates include a Waste Services Charge.


All businesses need to have their own waste contractor to collect and dispose of their waste. The City of Sydney also strongly recommends businesses hire a contractor to collect recyclables and separate materials such as paper and glass from general waste.”
