What Time is My Bin Collected?
Your bin may be emptied at any time between 6:00am and 5:00pm on your scheduled collection day. Our collection routes do change from time to time, so place your bin out the night before to ensure we don’t miss your bin.
Where Should I Put My Bins for Collection?
Place your bins a minimum of 50cm apart at the kerb with wheels facing your house. This gives our ‘bin grabbers’ clear access to empty each bin.
Ensure bins are placed clear of overhanging trees, power lines etc and clear of parked cars and other structures. This allows safe collection of your bin.
Only Coffs Coast Waste Services bins will be serviced by our drivers. If you have a bin from another Council area, or one without Coffs Coast Waste Services branded on the front, your bin will not be emptied.
Overweight or Overfull Bins
Overweight bins will not be emptied. Our ‘bin grabbers’ can only lift up to 80kg. Please avoid filling bins with excessive quantities of heavy materials e.g. glass, wet lawn clippings etc.
Overfull bins can result in difficult of collection and spillage. The lid of your bin must be fully closed with all material contained inside the bin.
Need an extra bin?
You can order additional red or green bins from your local Council. Annual fees apply.
You can swap your 240L yellow (recycling) bin for a 360L bin, or you can order an additional yellow bin from your local Council. Annual fees apply.
