Information resources for Gosford City Council hazardous waste services.
Many items of household waste should not be disposed of to the landfill through the general waste red bin due to their potential to cause harm to the environment or danger to human health.
For some of these items Council organises special days where residents can safely dispose of these items such as Chemical and E Waste Clean Out Days. For other materials, special sites for disposal have been made available at the WoyWoy land fill or Kincumber transfer station so that they can be disposed of in the most appropriate way.
For further information on the safest way to handle asbestos, please refer to the following resources:
