Handy tip

To avoid odours and attracting flies and vermin, food related businesses are encouraged to have a minimum number of bins and have them emptied multiple times per week.

Commercial recycling bins

The City of Subiaco promotes sustainability by encouraging businesses to reuse, reduce and recycle waste. Recycling collection services are weekly together with your regular bin. Businesses may request 240L recycling bins for either paper (red lid) or recyclable plastics, glass, aluminium & tin (yellow lid), and are available to commercial property owners free of charge. To be eligible for recycling bins you must fill at least half a bin each week.

Cardboard collection

The city supplies commercial businesses with cardboard collection sacks that are collected weekly on Friday mornings. Collection sacks must contain clean, flattened cardboard and should not be too heavy to avoid handling difficulties. Sacks supplied with a frame must be removed from the frame and the tops hooked together with clips. Orange stickers will be left on contaminated bins/sacks and repeat incidents will lead to the service being withdrawn.

Send a written request to the city to arrange a commercial recycling service, City of Subiaco, PO Box 270, Subiaco WA 6904.
