                    Waste and recycling

                    Businesses in the City of Melbourne can access a wide range of services for reusing, recycling or disposing of waste.

                    ​   

                    • Cigarette butt disposal

                      Businesses have a legal responsibility to manage the litter generated by their business. This includes collecting, storing and disposing of the cigarette butts littered by staff, customers, clients and visitors to your business – even if they are dropped outside your property boundary.
                    • Central City waste and recycling programs

                      The City of Melbourne is trialling a commercial waste and recycling service in four central city hot spots to tackle amenity issues. Businesses and residents in the laneways and nearby vicinity can participate in the Compactors and Recycling Hubs in Laneways project.
                    • Food and other commercial waste

                      As a business owner or operator, you are responsible for arranging the proper disposal of the waste generated by your business. Food waste makes up the largest proportion of waste in our landfills and is also one of the most harmful to the environment.
                    • Bins and collection services

                      As a business owner or operator, you are responsible for arranging the proper disposal of the waste generated by your business. Waste, including general garbage and recyclables, needs to be placed in appropriate bins or skips ready for collection.
                    • Central city waste laws

                      A clean and accessible Melbourne is good for businesses, residents and visitors, and we are all responsible for making this happen. Our waste laws help keep our central city laneways and streets cleaner and less cluttered, and help minimise disturbance from late-night bin collection.
