Commercial waste service
Wagga Wagga City Council is changing its commercial waste service to assist businesses in the separation of their waste to reduce their waste to landfill. This change will apply to all rateable and non-rateable Non-Residential properties and will roll out in September 2018. Correspondence has been sent to all affected property owners.
The new standard commercial waste service will consist of the following bin service:
- 1x 240L commercial general waste bin – fortnightly collection; and
- 1x 240L commercial recycling bin – fortnightly collection
Under the new service, commercial properties will also have the ability to include a weekly food organics and garden organics collection in their package for an additional annual charge.
For more information about the changes to the commercial waste service please contact Wagga Wagga City Council on 1300 292 442.
