Trade Waste

Bin Collection

Business are required to make their own arrangements for regular ongoing trade waste removal. You may choose to use either a private contractor or the North Sydney Council contractor.

The cost for Council's commercial waste collection depends on the number of bins, bin size, and frequency of collection. Bins may be 56, 120 or 240 litres; or a 660 litre skip. Waste is collected from Monday to Saturday.

If you wish to use the Council service, all you have to do is register with council and choose what morning(s) you would like to have your bin collected. Payment is quarterly. Please use the appropriate form:

Method of payment to be used in all cases for trade waste is

Waste Skips

If you are hiring a skip for waste removal, be it trade waste or household, and you intend to place it in a public area such as on a footpath or road, then you will need a permit from Council. We are responsible for ensuring that skips in public areas are positioned safely and do not block access or visibility for cars and pedestrians. Before booking your skip send us this form:
