Bulky Goods (Kerbside) Collections (Coffs Harbour City Council and Bellingen Shire Council Residents Only)

Coffs Harbour City Council and Bellingen Shire Council provides you with two free bulky goods collections per year. This service is included in your waste levy, and Coffs Coast Waste Services pick the items up from your kerb.

There are some guidelines about putting out your bulky items for collection, to ensure the safety of our collection staff, and to keep the amount of bulky items consistent for all residents.

Bulky goods items can be placed out for collection on the kerb the day before the collection date. Collections fall within the scheduled week. If you don't know when your next collection is due, go to Collections Calendars and enter your street name into the searchable data base.

The quantity must be no more than 3 cubic metres, this is about the size of a standard box trailer. Items must be NEATLY piled up. Small items are to be in a box or bags.

We cannot collect dangerous or hazardous items such as gas bottles, chemicals, paints etc. Car parts, tyres, batteries and builders waste cannot be placed out, nor can broken glass or mirrors.

Anything that you can dispose of using your household bins, such as general garbage, recyclables and greenwaste, will not be collected with the Bulky Goods collection.

You can download a pdf file of the bulky goods guide here, or call us on 1800 265 495, or email if you have further questions.

Keep your Bulky Goods items to the size of a box trailer

The GOOD - Bulky goods items neatly stacked, no more than a box trailer load in size, and small items packed in boxes.

The BAD - Untidy, oversized pile of bulky goods items, with alot of small items not bagged or boxed. This pile was rejected.

The Downright UGLY - This load will not be collected, it contains items that can be placed in the garbage bin, it is oversized, strewn over the lawn, and has a lot of small, loose items in it. What you cannot see is a bag of food scraps.
