Discussing waste management Newcastle NSW

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 2020, the waste levy per tonne has been increased to $146.00+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 prices in NSW

The NSW EPA levy seems to only move in one direction. That, of course, is upwards!

waste removal newcastle nsw

Levies on landfill are now a real burden on small business – companies that produce lots of heavier waste such as cafes or restaurants.

Sometimes, you actually can reduce your spending by making some pretty simple but sensible improvements such as increasing recycling or optimising your bin collection frequency.


So, how can Waster help you with Newcastle NSW low-cost waste collections and disposals in 2024?

Waster speaks to many small and medium business owners and managers every day. And so, we know the best tips and insiders advice on how to reduce your waste management costs.

Some great tips for Newcastle business include:

  • bundling all your services with one provider – It makes little sense to be procuring 5 different services from 5 different provides. Picking one supplier for all your Newcastle waste disposal services means you can get lower pricing and only have to deal with one invoice.
  • boosting your recycling whenever possible – Newcastle NSW waste disposal and management costs have increased so much in recent years that you need to minimise costs whenever possible. This is even more important for Newcastle businesses in 2024 as the retail sector and other industries are facing a slowdown.
  • getting advice on the best bin size for your business – Getting the right bin size means you will not have to book too many pickups or pay for pickups when the bin is half empty!

There are, of course, some other tips that you should keep in mind when it comes to minimising rubbish pickup fees.

At Waster, we also recommend contacting your waste removal supplier in Newcastle if you are going away for a few weeks and will not require services.

This, of course, is valid at Christmas time when many businesses close their doors for a couple of weeks. Check out this article by the NAB bank on reducing your business costs.

If you are new to Waster, you can check out our services and prices in our online waste shop by pressing the button below.


How you can easily save money come December on waste disposal in Newcastle NSW

If your business is closing for a couple of weeks over Christmas, many businesses close down for up to a month. You can reduce costs by simply contacting your waste and recycling provider and asking to have your services placed “on a stop” for a few weeks.

Simply contact your provider and provide the days you will not require services. They should be able to cancel any scheduled services during this time. This will, of course, prevent you from being charged for missed or “futile” collections.

In reality, the waste company will also be pretty happy about it as they often have reduced services over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

This, of course, also applies to any other holiday periods you have during the year.

On the flip side, with a flexible waste management company, you should also be able to book extra ad hoc pickups as required without committing to extra pickups every week.

We always suggest arranging minimum services – especially for new businesses – and then booking in extra pickups as required.


Waste removal Newcastle: book in any changes to the schedule in good time

Of course, the Christmas period can be one of the busiest trading times for many businesses, most particularly in the retail and hospitality trades. If you require additional services over the Christmas holidays, you should book these in as far as advance as possible. Many customer service staff are on holiday over this time and you may not speak to your usual contact if you have issues during this period.

Rubbish removal Newcastle

Rubbish removal Newcastle NSW: if there is one thing we dislike at Waster, it is having to pass on additional charges to customers to anything waste management-related.

We really aim to present a predictable and reliable cost basis for our small and medium customers for rubbish removal in Newcastle NSW and throughout Australia.

We have based our business on providing easy-to-book, manage and rely on waste services and recycling.


Rubbish removal Newcastle NSW: why your waste bin needs to be closable

The tricky thing about waste services is that it is collected by volume but disposed of at the landfill by weight (in tonnes). This means that your waste provider (Waster included) will estimate the weight of your waste when quoting you a price.

In industry parlance, we expect your bins to weigh a certain amount based on the industry you operate in (i.e. food manufacturers will be heavier on average than offices, for example).

Because of this, companies with heavier bins will pay more for their Newcastle NSW rubbish removal services.

A problem arises if you have overfilled bins (i.e., the lid will not close and the rubbish is spilling out). This creates a number of issues for the garbage collection company:

A. a health and safety issue – tipping and moving bins that are overflowing can be dangerous as it can mean rubbish falls on people or causing strain and stress injuries due to its heaviness.

B. time required increase – when a bin is overfilled, the driver will have to spend time ensuring the bin can be safely emptied and that any rubbish overflowing is also disposed of. The time and effort are not factored into the route for that day. And also, the driver is not paid to do it!

C. the extra weight means the service is not commercially viable for the supplier – if a bin is regularly overfilled, that bin will become loss-making for the service company. It becomes equivalent to two bins being picked up for the price of one.


Waster terms and conditions are as follows under Point 8…

8. Weight Limit. “The Customer” must not fill the “bins” beyond the maximum height of the container and the lid must be able to be fully closed. “The Customer” acknowledges that the weight of the waste deposited in the “bins” shall not exceed the agreed weight per cubic meter agreed. Excessive weight may be invoiced as an extra charge at the discretion of “the Supplier”.

See our recent post on transporting waste across the country in waste removal in Brisbane.



At Waster, you can easily arrange low-cost rubbish removal services for your business from Port Stephens to the Newcastle area and Central Coast.

We also provide skip bin services from 2m mini bins to 30 cubic metres.


Give us a call to discuss your options and free quotes.

Newcastle garbage collection

Newcastle garbage collection: Waster has been expanding its national footprint across all major metro regions in Australia for quite some time at a steady pace now.

We have expanded to Ballarat and Bendigo in Victoria. However, we have been operating in the Newcastle, New South Wales area since we launched and it will remain one of our key areas of focus.

We recently reduced our pricing for many Newcastle garbage collection services and Newcastle recycling bin services also due to our increasing presence in Newcastle, the Central Coast and the Hunter area.

In New South Wales, we now operate in Newcastle as well as the Sydney metro, and the Central Coast.


Newcastle garbage collection and recycling services: what you should consider before booking services

Before seeking to book commercial waste management and recycling services for your business, you should certainly check if the local council can meet your service requirements.

The Newcastle City Council website contains some useful resources, including an A-Z of recycling detailing how one can recycle various products in the local area. Note that we also have an A-Z recycling directory that you should definitely check out.

In many cases, when your business grows, or if you produce lots of waste and recycling, the Newcastle garbage collection provided by the council will not be sufficient. As a result, you will require commercial bin collection services in Newcastle.

If the council service is not sufficient (i.e., not large enough) or available on the days you require or offer the customer service your business needs, Newcastle commercial garbage collection through Waster may be what you are looking for.
