Household Problem Waste

Problem household waste is harmful if placed in landfill as it is toxic and can cause both environmental damage as well as harm to humans and wildlife.

Bulky Household Waste

Eligible households have two options for disposing their bulky waste items:

1. Request up to two (2) free self-haul vouchers from March to March each year to take your bulky household waste 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. User-pays collections are for a fee of $50.00 - payable at time of booking via credit or debit card over the phone, direct deposit or in person at the Coffs Coast Waste Services office - 25 Englands Road, Coffs Harbour. You may request up to two (2) user-pays kerbside bulky household waste collections between March and March each year.

Please note, due to services in the Nambucca and Bellingen shires, there may be some periods when this service is unavailable in Coffs Harbour.

Illegal Dumping

If you see dumped items on the kerbside, in a park, reserve, the beach, or the bush, Council encourages you to report them via the Report Illegal Dumping (RID) online tool. This helps keep our community clean and safe.

Report illegal dumping in 3 easy steps:

  1. Visit RidOnline on your smart phone, tablet or computer

  2. Take a photo of the illegally dumped material

  3. Add the location and description of the dump site.

This report is sent to the NSW Environment Protection Agency (EPA) and the relevant authority to investigate. Reporting can result in fines being issued to individuals for up to $7,500, and up to $15,000 for corporations.

If dumped waste poses an immediate environmental risk contact Council on 02 6648 4000. Environmental risks include hazardous materials, waterway pollution, or immediate risks to the health and safety of people and/or animals.
