How many days later, after you received your renewed passport, did your old passport arrive?
it may help if you mention which country you are referring to...I suspect there will be many different answers
Some countries don't return the old passport either unless specifically requested.

Andrew like you I have all my old passports first as a young 20 year old clean shaven and lots of thick hair young man and now over 60 and with a white beard and very little hair.
Please give us a clue as to what passport you hold.
Thank you very much!
USA - took about 1 week, after “Expedited” renewal.
About a week for US passport the last two times I renewed.
My experience wtih US passports is that I got the old one back with the new one in the same envelope.
