Whats on waste and recycling

We are committed to providing waste minimisation and recycling solutions to the community and ensuring the long term sustainability of our waste management operations. In Newcastle, around 30% of the waste (by weight) in our red lid bins every week is food waste. Find out more about reducing or recycling your food waste; and council’s future plans for an organics processing facility.
