The free drop-off facility for problem household waste at the Coffs Harbour Waste Management Facility in Englands Road has today (December 2) re-opened to the public.
Council would like to thank the community for its patience during the closure.
Household problem waste collected at this facility includes household quantities of water and oil-based paints, motor and other oils, household batteries, fluoro light globes and tubes, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and gas bottles.
Such material can be dropped off for free during the opening hours of the Waste Management Facility, seven days a week.
E-waste – such as televisions, VCRs, DVDs, computers – can also be dropped off free of charge at the Englands Road Facility. Household batteries and mobile phones can be dropped off at local library branches in Coffs Harbour, Toormina and Woolgoolga.
The free public recycling drop-off for materials such as cardboard, paper, clean polystyrene, glass bottles and jars, and recyclable plastic and aluminium containers has continued to operate as normal.
