Business waste collection

We can provide most local businesses with a waste and recycling collection service.

The service we provide is a domestic service which has been extended to commercial properties for waste from lunchrooms and bathrooms and should not be used to dispose of waste generated from business activities.

This service should not replace commercial waste collection services. 

Can my business have bins?

We only provide a waste and recycling service for the property that appears on your rates notice.

If your premises is not registered as a separately rated property then you are not eligible for bins and you will need to share the existing bin service at your property.

What size bins can I have?

The standard allocation of bins includes:

  • 80-litre rubbish bin
  • 80-litre purple-lidded glass bin
  • 120-litre yellow-lidded recycling bin

For properties in the Abbotsford trial area, thestandard allocation also includes:

  • 120-litre food and green waste bin 

Currently, there are a number of commercial or industrial properties that may have a rubbish bin larger than 80-litres.

If your rubbish bin is damaged beyond repair or stolen, it will be replaced with an 80-litre rubbish bin in accordance with Council policy. 

The yellow-lidded recycling bin and purple-lidded glass bins can both be upgraded to a larger maximum size of 240-litres if needed, free of charge.

You can also request an additional recycling and/or glass bin if the 240-litre bin does not meet your needs. 


How much does it cost?

If Yarra has not previously supplied bins to the address, there will be a set-up cost of $193 for the standard allocation of new bins.


When do my bins get collected? 

Commercial bins must be placed out for collection by 5am. The day of your collection depends on your suburb. For more information, please check your collection day.
