Bulky Goods Disposal Services


PLEASE NOTE: Bulky Goods Vouchers and User-Pays Collection Services Will Commence from 5 March 2018

Coffs Harbour City Council is introducing improvements to the bulky goods waste service available to all households paying a Domestic Waste Occupied Land charge.

From 5 March 2018 Council will provide households with two options for disposing their bulky waste items:

1. Request up to two (2) free self-haul vouchers to take your items to the Englands Road Waste Management Facility, and/or
2. A dial-up user-pays booking system to organise a collection from your premises.

Further information about both new services will be provided in coming months.

NOTE: Business premises are NOT eligible for a bulky goods service.

Keep your Bulky Goods items to the size of a box trailer

The GOOD - Bulky goods items neatly stacked, no more than a box trailer load in size, and small items packed in boxes.

The BAD - Untidy, oversized pile of bulky goods items, with alot of small items not bagged or boxed. This pile was rejected.

The Downright UGLY - This load will not be collected, it contains items that can be placed in the garbage bin, it is oversized, strewn over the lawn, and has a lot of small, loose items in it. What you cannot see is a bag of food scraps.
