Commercial Waste Services
Attention householders: To arrange waste services for a residential property, please see Service Requests.
City of Newcastle offers a range of commercial waste and recycling services at competitive prices.
Annual charges apply that must be paid for in advance, with an account issued at the start of each financial year. A pro-rata charge is applied during the first year of service, meaning you can sign up at any time.
Please note: Rateable business properties are entitled to a 140-litre general waste (red lid) bin, serviced weekly, as part of their standard rateable entitlement. All other kerbside bin services, including recycling and garden organics, are available on a fee-for-service basis. Please see options and pricing below.

The annual fees above are for 2023/24 and are for each bin service per week. Multiple bins and/or collections are charged accordingly. For example, two 140-litre bins collected twice weekly equals four services (that is, 2 bins x $630 x 2 services = $2,520 p.a.), as does a single 140-litre bin collected four times per week (that is, 1 bin x $630 x 4 services = $2,520 p.a.).
Rateable business properties are entitled to a 140-litre general waste (red lid) bin, serviced weekly, as levied under the Business Waste Management Services Charge.
This bin can be upsized to a 240-litre bin for an annual charge ($320.25 in 2023/24).
To help reduce waste sent to landfill, recycling and garden organics bins are offered at lower prices than general waste (garbage) bins.
We offer 660-litre and 1,110-litre (large mobile bins with four castor wheels) for both general waste and recycling. Please contact us at email@example.com or on 4974 2000 to apply for this service.
The annual fees above are for 2023/24 and are for one bin service per week. Multiple bins and/or collections are charged accordingly. For example, two 660-litre general waste bins collected weekly equals two services (that is, 2 bins x $2037 p.a. per bin = $4,074 p.a.).
