Inner West Council – Ashfield

Inner West Council offers a competitively priced waste service for businesses located in the former Ashfield Council area.

Businesses can apply to have their bins collected weekly, twice a week, or three times a week. Each general waste service includes a free recycling service.

The following conditions apply for Council's business waste service:

  • No liquids or hot ashes are permitted in the bins
  • Bins must not exceed 70 kilograms in weight. As a general rule, a bin is too heavy if you cannot lift the front of the bin with one hand.
  • Bins should be left out after 6pm on the day prior to collection and returned to the property within 12 hours of being emptied.

To apply for a business waste service please fill out an application form (PDF 576.5KB).
