Collection Days

Your general waste (red lid) bin is serviced every week. Your recycling (yellow lid) and green waste (green lid) bins are serviced on alternate weeks, on the same day as your general waste collection.

Your bins must be on the kerb by 5.30am on your collection day. You can help to ensure that your bins don't get missed by getting it right on bin night.

Waste collection calendars

Council's Waste Services Guide contains a calendar showing your green waste and recycling collection weeks, together with information on a range of waste services available to Newcastle households. The guide has a magnet on the back so that it can be kept on the fridge for quick reference.

The guide runs on a financial year format (i.e. the calendar starts from July) and is distributed to households at the end of June each year. If you do not have a calendar, please complete the Waste Calendar Request Form to have one posted to you.
