Penrith is a recognised leader in sustainable waste management, particularly our household organic waste recycling service. Council is committed to actively supporting our community to reduce waste sent to landfill through reducing, reusing, recycling and generally disposing of waste responsibly. We provide domestic and commercial waste collection and recycling services and promote waste avoidance and resource recovery. We also play a role through the approvals and regulation processes as regulator of building and land development activity.
You can now submit requests for all your waste needs 24/7 from any PC or mobile device so it’s convenient when you need it. The system is directly integrated with our Customer Experience team and Suez – that means your requests are actioned faster, and are easy to track for you and us.
