Commercial or Business Waste Services

Businesses across the Wollongong City Council area can choose to receive a Commercial Recycling and Waste Collection Service.

The Residual Waste Bin (red lid) is collected weekly while the Recycling (yellow lid) and Organics (green lid) bins are collected on alternate fortnights.

Your Commercial Recycling and Waste Service consists of three bins:

  • Recycling 240 Litre Bin  (Yellow Lid)
  • Organics 240 Litre Bin (Green Lid)
  • Residual Waste 80 Litre, 120 Litre or 240 Litre Bin (Red Lid)

Note: Commercial Services are NOT entitled to the On-Call Household Cleanup Service

Council’s ‘user pays’ approach allows businesses to choose the size of their Residual Waste Bin in line with their individual needs. The larger Residual Waste Bin chosen will equate to a larger fee for service, due to the increased waste being sent to Landfill.

Note: There is a limit of one full service per commercial premises and only the property owners can request a collection service. Owners will be invoiced directly by Wollongong City Council.
