Commercial waste services

Every rateable commercial property in Lake Macquarie City pays a minimum of one Commercial Waste Management Charge, paid for via the rates. This entitles your property to the standard commercial waste collection services, being one 240 litre garbage bin collected weekly.

In addition to this, Council offers businesses flexibility to tailor waste services to best suit their business needs.

We offer a range of bin sizes for additional services across the following waste service types:

  • weekly garbage service
  • fortnightly recycling service
  • weekly green waste service

Fees are charged for these additional services.

240L garbage bins are owned by the property owner, while the recycling and green waste bins are owned by the collection contractor.

Property owners are responsible for the purchase of 240L general waste bins for use at their property.
