Businesses and waste

Inner West Council does not service commercial properties in the former Marrickville Council area unless there is a residential component to the premises (e.g. a residence attached to a business). In this case Council will only service the residential waste.

Businesses are required to hire a contractor to remove their waste and must ensure that all private bins are kept inside their property. We strongly encourage businesses to sort their waste and have recyclable materials collected separately.

For a list of services and recycling options visit Planet Ark's recycling directory. If you are in the hospitality sector, a food retailer or simply have large amounts of leftover food during your operation, consider donating your excess food to organisations such as the Food Pantry at Addison Road Centre, Foodbank, OzHarvest and SecondBite. Visit Love Food Hate Waste to download the Food Donation Toolkit and find out the step by step guidelines to donate surplus food to charities.
