Changes to City’s Recycling Processing Contract

Recycled waste collected from yellow lid bins on Newcastle residential streets will be processed on the Central Coast rather than in Lake Macquarie, following a change to the city’s waste contract.


The new processing location will have no effect on residential recycling collection days or times.

Council has also requested management explore a model that would include locating a materials recovery facility (MRF) at the Summerhill Waste Management Centre, which would ensure recyclable waste throughout the Hunter, can be processed locally.
