Bulk Kerbside Bookings  

IMPORTANT NOTICE –  2nd May 2022:


The temporary pause on booking a bulk kerbside collection has been removed and Central Coast residents are now able to book a bulk kerbside service.

Our workforce is still impacted by the current Covid-19 virus outbreak, however the new isolation rules have lessened the impact and we will be able to resume services at a limited capacity.

As we are still experiencing resource shortages, the full-service capacity may not become available for a few weeks and therefore residents may find that they are offered a booking date in a few weeks’ time.

If you do book a bulk kerbside service, ensure you check the date of your booking and place your bulk waste on the kerbside the day before your booking date.

We want to thank the Central Coast Community for their patience.

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:

  • New Years Day
  • Australia Day
  • ANZAC Day
  • Good Friday & Easter Monday
  • June Long Weekend
