Council or building management, who does what?

Both Council and your buildings management play an important role in the smooth collection of waste and recycling from your building. While they often work together they each have distinct roles.

What does Council do?

  • Empty bins.

  • Collects Booked Clean Ups.

  • Manages illegal dumping on public land.

  • Provides education to residents about how to use these services.

What does building management do?

  • Arranges Booked Clean ups with Council.

  • Maintains the bin storage room including regular washing of bins and floor, picking up items on the ground and reporting broken bins to allow the truck to empty the bins   

  • Manages dumping on private property.
