Scrap Metal Products Central Coast Council collects and recycles over 5,000 tonnes of scrap metal per year. Scrap Metal is accepted at Council’s waste facilities free of charge. All scrap metal taken to the facilities is 100% recycled. Accepted items include car bodies (not LPG), microwaves, washing machines, dryers, fridges, freezers, dishwashers, bikes, bbqs, trampoline frames, air conditioners, car tyres on rim (maximum four) and all other primarily metal containing products. Council will also collect these items from your kerbside, utilising one of your free six (6) kerbside collections per annum. Scrap metal is recovered from the tip face for recycling, where possible.
