Commercial waste can be defined as any waste other than domestic waste. It may be generated as a result of the operation of a not-for-profit organisation or carrying out a business, including associated lawn and garden clippings from normal maintenance of the business premises. Commercial waste also includes rubbish produced by a business’s customers (e.g. food wrappers and containers). Some waste facilities do not accept commercial waste. Check our Services.

The reasons commercial waste is treated differently
There are a number of reasons why commercial waste is treated differently to domestic waste. This includes:
The legislative framework is different for commercial waste, resulting in additional compliance requirements for us.
Domestic properties are charged a waste management facility charge as part of the property rates, however commercial properties are not. The payment of the waste management facility charge allows a nil-gate charge for domestic customers.
Certain wastes are classified as ‘regulated waste’ when generated by a commercial business, therefore these need to be appropriately managed.
Commercial businesses generate larger quantities of wastes.
The previous version of the State Waste Levy applied only to commercial waste and not domestic waste. It is not yet known if the incoming waste levy will initially apply to commercial businesses only, and therefore our ability to receive commercial waste at our facilities.
