The City cannot recommend specific commercial waste providers. We encourage businesses to seek more than one quote. Perhaps even speak with a neighbouring business to share the service.

Why has the City ended its commercial waste service?

The previous commercial waste and recycling service was an extension of the residential two-bin system, rather than a separate and tailored commercial waste service. It wasn't designed to meet the needs of different businesses or encourage the diversion of waste from landfill.  Additionally, the City is implementing a three-bin FOGO system from October 2021 and this service is not suitable for commercial businesses.

Commercial waste companies are better placed to provide this service to businesses. They have economies of scale, and can provide competitively priced services that are tailored to the needs of your business.

These services are designed to maximise recycling and diverting waste from landfill, which is an important consideration for the City that has set a vision of sending zero waste to landfill by 2028.

Why can't the City provide a tailored service?

A fit for purpose, tailored service would require a significant additional investment.  The commercial market already has several major suppliers and is very competitive, and as businesses are not obliged to use the City’s services this is not a viable option.

I have a small commercial business (micro-business) which only generates a small amount of waste

There is an option for the City to provide a residential waste collection service to small businesses. This would be a discretionary, charged service option of $520 per annum, principally provided on the basis that it is the best environmental option for the business and can be accommodated in the City’s existing residential collection service.

If you think this service would be suitable for your micro-business, please email waste.enquiry@vincent.wa.gov.au or call 9273 6000 to request an assessment form.
