Commercial waste

You're invited to participate in our free business e-waste collection. 

The City of Canada Bay partnered with ACE Recycling Group to offer a free e-waste collection service to local businesses in June 2023.

We've helped to diverted over 20 tonnes of e-waste from landfill through this program since 2012. Look out for our next free business e-waste collection in 2023 and you could help us divert even more!

Items accepted:

  • Computer equipment
  • Electric tools
  • Televisions
  • Telephones
  • DVD players
  • Cabling.

Items not accepted:

  • White goods: fridges, freezers, air conditioners
  • Lighting: fluorescent tubes and halogen lights
  • Hazardous waste: smoke detectors, chemicals, broken and glass monitors
  • Media: cassette tapes.

When recycling e-waste we recommend that you remove any sensitive data from your computer systems prior to the collection. While all care is taken in the reuse process, responsibility for data security lies with the donor.

Most e-waste collected will be dismantled (separating plastics, circuit boards, copper wiring, steel and aluminium parts) and then directed to recycling companies. Some e-waste will be re-built and sold cheaply to local community groups, students and general public, while some will be donated to local and overseas aid organisations.

Applying for new bins or changes to commercial services

All properties classified Commercial or Non-Rateable in Council’s rating system can elect to have a Council or private company waste collection service. Council offers the equivalent of its residential bin service to commercial properties with the exclusion of the kerbside bulk household collection.

Fill in one of the below forms to apply for a paid council collection of your business waste and recycling. The form must be lodged to commence, increase, decrease or cancel a waste service, and a minimum two weeks’ notice must be given for any changes.

While Council’s commercial property waste collection service operates 5 days a week, (Mon-Fri), commercial properties electing to use Council’s commercial service will only be serviced once a week. The servicing day will align with the residential collection zone of the area your property is located within.

Waste, recycling and garden organics services are available with the following collection frequencies:

  • Waste, collected weekly
  • Recycling, collected fortnightly
  • Garden Organics (optional), collected fortnightly (alternate week to recycling)

All commercial properties wanting to utilise Councils service are required to have a recycling bin as part of their service.
