Commercial waste bins
The standard commercial service is a 240-litre general waste bin ($529.00 per annum). Additional bin services are available at $581.90 for each extra 240-litre bin. To request additional waste bins or waste collection services, the property owner, or legally appointed managing agent must send a written request to the city.
To avoid odours and attracting flies and vermin, food-related businesses are encouraged to have a minimum number of bins and have them emptied multiple times per week.
Commercial recycling bins
The City of Subiaco promotes sustainability by encouraging businesses to reuse, reduce and recycle waste. Recycling collection services are fortnightly on the same day as your regular bin service. Click here to find out your recycling week. Businesses may request additional 240-litre recycling bins at no extra cost.
The city supplies businesses with cardboard collection sacks that are collected weekly on Friday mornings. Collection sacks must contain clean, flattened cardboard and should not be too heavy to avoid handling difficulties. Sacks supplied with a frame must be removed from the frame. Orange stickers will be left on contaminated bins/sacks and repeat incidents will lead to the service being withdrawn.
To arrange delivery of a frame and sacks, call the waste department on 9387 0921.
Report your damaged waste or recycling bin to the city for repair or replacement by filling out the online request form.
