ABOUT US
This division is charged with the collection and disposal of all residential and commercial solid waste within the City of New Bern.

GDS/New Bern provides once per week collection to approximately 11,600 residential units. Service days are set to 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 for the storage of the waste prior to collection and ease of placement for collection. The City, in conjunction with our solid waste collection program, provides for the recycling of mixed paper to residential households as an added means to conserve our natural resources. Please view Residential Collection Rates, Residential Collection Guidelines and Route Map Schedule for more information.

Waste Industries/New Bern also collects and disposes of approximately 23,000 cubic yards of commercial waste per month, through front loaded dumpsters, ranging in capacity from two to eight yards, up to six times weekly, depending on individual service needs. Each business is responsible for providing its own container, either owned or leased, which is collected by Waste Industries/New Bern for a set fee per cubic yard, established by the Board of Aldermen, which is billed on the customer’s utility bill. Please view Commercial Refuse Rates for more information.

“Bear in Mind in New Bern ... If you Litter you Lose.”

Citizens are encouraged to review the Residential Collection Guidelines on proper placement of materials and collection. The City's goal is to have a “litter-free community” and your help is needed by “putting litter in its place.”
