About Us

This division is responsible for the collection and disposal of residential and commercial solid waste within the city of New Bern.

The City of New Bern/Waste Industries provides once per week collection. Service days coincide with the collection of recyclables, which are collected through the Craven County Curbside Recycling Program. A 65-gallon roll-out cart is provided by our contractor. Please view Residential Collection RatesResidential Collection Guidelines and Route Map Schedule for more information.

The City of New Bern/Waste Industries also collects and disposes of commercial waste through front-load dumpsters, ranging in capacity from two to eight yards, up to six times weekly, depending on service needs. Each business is responsible for providing its own container, either owned or leased, which is collected by the contractor for a set fee per cubic yard. The fee is established by the Board of Aldermen, and is billed on the customer’s utility bill. Please view Commercial Refuse Rates for more information.
