Service Updates – COVID

All waste and recycling services currently remain the same. Please continue to place your bins and booked bulk waste services out on the kerbside for collection the night before your bin service day.

To maintain safe social distancing practices between our workers we will be staggering the start time of our drivers to minimise the risk of COVID-19 on our workforce.

This will mean some services will begin at 3.30am across the Central Coast.

Some services may also be delayed. Please leave your bins and booked bulk kerbside collections at the kerbside until they have been collected.

We 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 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.
