Bulky Household Waste Services

COFFS HARBOUR CITY COUNCIL

Coffs Harbour City Council is introducing changes to the bulky goods waste service available to all households paying a Domestic Waste Occupied Land charge. This will lead to improved street amenity as well as maximising material recovery and recycling, whilst still providing up to four (4) bulky goods services per year.

From 5 March 2018 all households will have two options for disposing their bulky waste items:

1. Request up to two (2) free self-haul vouchers each year between March and March. Each voucher can be redeemed for the disposal of up to 200kg of acceptable bulky household waste at the Englands Road Waste Management Facility, and/or
2. A dial-up user-pays booking system to organise a collection from your premises. There will be a fee of $44 per booked collection service, and a maximum of 3 cubic metres of acceptable household bulky waste will be collected during each service. Eligible households may request up to two (2) user-pays kerbside collections between March and March each year. Payment must be made at the time of booking the service.

Please phone the CCWS Hotline on 1800 265 495 to request a voucher or a user-pays kerbside collection. Please note: these services will not be available until 5th March 2018.

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

What if I rent my property?

From March 2018, only the person(s) residing at the property, whether this is a tenant or owner-occupier, can book a dial-up user-pays collection service or request self-haul vouchers for that property.

Proof of residency will be required.

  • Scrap Metals
