Waste management Newcastle NSW: Newcastle is probably the most livable city in New South Wales and all of Australia (at least in my opinion). From Port Stephens to the Hunter Valley region, the entire region is packed with beautiful wildlife, beaches and forests.Not just a lovely place to live, as the second biggest city in New South Wales (check out our guide to Sydney waste management), Waster.com.au has a very strong waste management offering in Newcastle and the surrounding areas in 2019 and 2020 (as well as the Central Coast region also).


Waste management Newcastle NSW 2020 requirements
With a diverse local economy covering tourism, mining, shipping, logistics as well as as a healthy and vibrant small and medium business community there is strong demand in the Newcastle metropolitan region for low cost, flexible online waste disposal services and recycling.


Newcastle region is included in the New South Wales EPA Regulated area under the MLA (the Metropolitan Levy Area). This means that all waste disposal of general waste at landfill is subject to the waste levy. From 1st July 2019, the waste levy per tonne has been increased to $143.60+GST per tonne.


Waster argues that waste levies at this level – when there has not been a large increase in recycling facilities available – is basically a real tax on doing business. This real cost can certainly hurt a small or medium business.


It should be noted that the levy payable in Newcastle is the same as that payable by businesses in Sydney waste metropolitan region. You can access comprehensive and updated links to government and EPA websites providing reliable information on state landfill levies on our website through the waste resources page.


This high cost of waste disposal makes it more important than ever for Newcastle based businesses to obtain low costs for their Newcastle waste services as well as increasing the financial benefits for businesses of recycling.


How to compare waste management Newcastle NSW prices


The easiest and quickest method for customers to check Newcastle waste collection prices in the Newcastle metro region (both new businesses opening their doors for the first time as well as established business looking to get better prices and contract terms) is to jump online and visit our online waste management shop. Here you can obtain real time pricing for all your waste management requirements as well as quickly book your services.


This is certainly quicker and easier than calling all the waste management Newcastle companies to compare!


It should be pointed out that our pricing model delivers significant discounts for businesses producing more waste i.e. by either booking more regular collections such a 3-4 times a week or by booking multiple bins. Booking multiple bins can result in discounts in cost of up to 10-15%.


Waster.com.au practises a commitment to pricing stability for our customers. In an industry where some suppliers are in the habit of increasing rates twice or more times a year, Waster strives to keep pricing volatility to a minimum.


As we operate on 30 day agreements – which you can cancel at anytime – it is certainly in our interest to keep your garbage collection rates as competitive as possible. This is unlike other waste management Newcastle companies – who will seek to sign a multi year contract for their services.
