Our bulk waste service is available to all rateable residential properties in Newcastle.
You can only arrange a bulk waste service on behalf of a property if you live there, regardless of whether you rent or own it. Special conditions apply for kerbside pick-ups if you live in a multi-unit dwelling or social housing; please see below for details.
If you request a self-haul voucher, you must be able to provide proof of occupancy (for example, a current driver licence) when you arrive at the weighbridge at Summerhill Waste Management Centre that demonstrates that you reside at the property address printed on the voucher.
If you live in a multi-unit dwelling, a communal kerbside bulk waste pick-up will be arranged for your entire complex. Please ask your strata manager / body corporate to contact us to make a booking. The managing body is responsible for requesting a service and notifying all residents of their scheduled collection date.
