If you are a business owner or manager in the North Sydney council region of Sydney – who has previously used North Sydney council waste management services (i.e. such as trade waste bin collections) for your business – you will have received a letter in the last few months saying that you need to find a commercial waste collection provider to continue your services.



Like many other councils throughout Sydney – and Australia wide – councils are reducing their commercial waste services or ceasing them altogether. This generally means businesses are required to arrange private waste collection services with a commercial waste company – such as Waster!


In many cases – North Sydney council waste collections can seem to be the easiest – and most straight forward option for a locall business – but below – we will cover how you can get better services and better pricing for North Sydney rubbish collection for your business through Waster.

The current rate card for existing customers of North Sydney waste collection services is as below:


$17.00 per collection of a 120 litre or 240 litre bin size – for either general waste or for recycling.


Whilst this rate was low for general waste – Waster commercial waste services are certainly competitive and are significantly cheaper for recycling bin options such as cardboard services or commingled recycling.


NoteWaster also provides the bin – and maintains it – whereas under the North Sydney council waste service – customers had to buy their own bin.


How do Waster’s prices for North Sydney bin collection compare?


For an office business based in North Sydney council area – such as Cammeray or St Leonards – Waster would charge the fees as per below for a weekly collection – i.e. monthly:


240 litre general waste bin weekly: – $19.00+GST – slightly more expensive

240 litre cardboard bin weekly: – $9.00+GST – cheaper than North Sydney council

240 litre commingled bin weekly: – $15.00+GST – cheaper than North Sydney council



Waster also offers larger bin sizes such as 660 litre or 1100 litre bins which could save you more money.


As you can see – these prices for general waste services are cheaper than those charged by North Sydney council  – for any business that has a general and a recycling bin.
