Service Updates – COVID

Due to our workforce being impacted by the current COVID outbreak, we are experiencing delays with some of our Waste & Recycling Services.  

Residents should leave bins and booked bulk waste services on the kerbside until their service takes place. This could be several days later than normal, and may occur on Saturdays and Sundays.

This is an evolving situation and levels of service could change further and we ask that you monitor our 1Coast Facebook Page for any service announcements. We will continue to provide the best possible services we can while we work through this situation.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

COVID-19: Safe Waste Disposal Procedures

Any individuals asked to self-isolate, either as a precaution or because they are confirmed to have Coronavirus (COVID-19), should observe the following advice to dispose of their household waste to ensure the virus is not spread via personal waste:

• Individuals should place all personal waste such as used Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs), tissues, gloves, paper towels, wipes, and masks securely in a plastic bag or bin liner;
• Bag should be filled no fuller than 80% so that it can be tied securely without spillage;
• This plastic bag should then be placed in another plastic bag and securely tied;
• These bags must be disposed of in your red lidded garbage bin.


Public Holidays

Don’t forget to put your bins out as usual on public holidays. Waste and recycling services remain the same across the Central Coast on all public holidays including:
