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 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 you can easily save money in Dec on Newcastle waste disposal
If your business is closing for a couple of weeks over Christmas – many business 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 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 for 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 in extra ad hoc pickups as required – i.e. 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 schedule in good time


Of course – the Christmas period can be one of the busiest trading times for many businesses – 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.
