Waste and recycling in business

Business co-mingled recycling collection service

Recycling in the workplace is not only good for the environment but also makes good business sense.  If participating in sustainable solutions is important to your business, recycling is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to start!

If your business does not have a recycling program, now is the time to start.  Recycling saves energy, resources and landfill space.

Co-mingled recyclables

This means that you can put paper, cardboard, aluminium and steel cans, plastics and glass bottles and jars into your business recycling bin, just the same as at home.

A co-mingled recycling bin for your business will save time by putting all your recycling into the one bin, reduce clutter of bins, reduce the carbon footprint of your business and reduce waste to landfill.

How much does it cost and how will I be billed?

There are a number of bin sizes available and services can be weekly or fortnightly depending on your business's needs.

Fees are very competitive and invoiced annually before the service is installed.

Bin Options *Rate per pick-up (including GST)
240 Litre $6.10
0.76m3 $9.60
1.5m3 $16.80
3m3 $27.50

Order a recycling bin today and let your customers know that your business cares about the environment.

Government Support

Council has a number of resources available to support business recycling. For more information, please contact our business recycling service on 07 4044 3044.

The Queensland Government has a series of sample waste profiles to help businesses understand what the likely composition of their waste is and what waste streams can be reduced, reused or recycled. Case studies are available to provide businesses with ideas for diverting useful materials from going to landfill.
