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 for servicing by getting it right on bin night.

Kerbside collection days

This can be done by pressing both the Control (Ctrl) and F5 buttons simultaneously on your keyboard.

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 2016/17 Waste Services Guide was sent to all households in July 2016. If you did not receive a calendar, please complete our waste calendar request form to have one posted to you.

Public holiday collections

All kerbside waste collection services will be carried out as normal on public holidays in 2016.

If your waste collection day falls on a public holiday, please place your bins out on the kerb as usual.
