In response to community requests, Coffs Harbour City Council has reopened its England Road Waste Facility from today to limited self-haul domestic waste.
“We would ask that people only use the facility to dispose of essential waste at this time as we are going to have to limit the numbers of vehicles coming into the site for health and safety reasons related to the pandemic,” said Mick Raby, Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure.
Priority access to the weighbridge is to be given to rubbish trucks and commercial waste operators so residents bringing in self-haul are being warned to expect delays and queues.
“Traffic control is to be in place along Englands Road itself, as well as inside the facility and we would ask people to be patient,” added Mr Raby.
Englands Road will be open to residents from 9am to 2pm, Mondays to Fridays, and 8am to 4pm on weekends. Payment is to be via EFT and/or voucher only, cash is currently not accepted.
There are currently a number of temporary changes to other local waste facilities:
- The Woolgoolga Waste Transfer Station is currently closed.
- Lowanna Transfer Station will be open on Sundays only for the disposal of household waste by Lowanna and Ulong residents that do not have a kerbside waste collection.
- Coramba Transfer Station will be open on Saturdays and Sundays only for the disposal of household waste by Coramba, Nana-Glen and Bucca region residents that do not have a kerbside waste collection.
