Central Coast Waste Facilities

Central Coast Council provides 2 waste disposal facilities for recycling, recovery, reuse and disposal of waste on the Central Coast.

Waste and Recycling can be taken to Woy Woy Waste Management Facility located in the southern end of the Central Coast and Buttonderry Waste Management Facility in the north. Both facilities are open seven days a week except on Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday.

COVID UPDATE

In line with current NSW Public Heath Orders, and lockdown restrictions, Central Coast Councils Buttonderry and Woy Woy Waste Management Facilities are open for essential services only. We are requesting household customers reassess their need to visit our waste management facilities against the Public Health Orders and accordingly defer visiting where possible until the lockdown restrictions are lifted. Residential customers dropping off non-perishable waste and recycling is unlikely to be classified as an “essential” reason to leave home.

Please be aware that you risk incurring significant fines from NSW Police if your reason for leaving home is not considered essential under the Public Health Orders.

You can utilise one of your bulk waste kerbside collections as an alternative to travelling to our facilities. Bookings can be made by phone 1300 126 278 or online by clicking here.

If you need to visit one of our waste facilities for essential purposes, you are required to:

  • Only one person per vehicle to attend the site (Current Public Health Orders stipulate only one person in the household can leave their residence to obtain food, goods or services once a day).
  • Check in using the QR codes at the inbound weighbridges, or use the manual sign-in sheet if you do not have a phone.
  • Wear a mask while onsite and practice social distancing between customers and staff
  • Not access the administration or amenities building
  • Avoid approaching and querying facility staff about the restrictions and other general matters. If you wish to clarify any issues please do so via web enquiry or prior to your essential trip.
  • Unload your own vehicle, other customers and staff are unable to assist
  • Pay using EFTPOS if possible.

Providing a safe environment for our customers and our team is Council’s priority.

Important update on Kincumber Waste Management Facility

Following a thorough review of its operations and infrastructure, the decision has been made to close Kincumber Waste Management Facility site as a waste transfer station. Council will reassess the site for alternate uses and keep the community updated throughout the process.

Residents can still responsibly dispose of their waste at the Woy Woy and Buttonderry facilities or take advantage of Council’s comprehensive domestic waste bulk kerbside collection service. Households are entitled to 6 bulk kerbside collections per year, which reset annually on 1 February and can be used general and bulky household items, as well as garden and vegetation.
