Couldn't we just use the Council bins?

Each council has different rules and regulations when it comes to general waste produced by businesses. Unlike most councils, Australian Waste Management can offer additional bins, a larger range of bin sizes, more frequent collections and overall better value, not to mention a single provider for all your waste and recycling requirements and a single bill option.

What size of bin and/or frequency should I choose?

Based on our experience and an industry survey1 of 50,000 businesses, we can provide the below guide.

What do I do on the collection day?

It is recommended to place your bins kerbside by 5pm the day prior to your collection day and leave them out until emptied.

One of the collection days falls on a Public Holiday. Do I still need to put my bin out?

Australian Waste Management does provide general waste collections on public holidays. Please still place your bin kerbside by 5pm the day prior to your collection day and leave them out until emptied.
