Impacted services due to novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
Council is monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation with the health and safety of our staff and the community the key priority.
In these unprecedented times it is necessary to change how transactions are completed at our waste management facilities.
Effective from 6 April 2020 NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED for any transaction at a waste management facility only credit/debit cards will be accepted with account holder transactions continuing as normal.
This decision has been made to ensure the ongoing health and safety of all persons involved in transactions at our waste facilities.
Council offers free coarse mulch at all waste facilities where available (refer to table below). This is available to all Sunshine Coast residential and commercial customers. Fine mulch is available for purchase from Buderim and Caloundra waste facilities only.
Crushed concrete is available for purchase from Buderim and Caloundra waste facilities only.
Mulch and concrete products are produced from incoming waste - garden waste and concrete and masonry wastes. Council crushes and grinds these wastes with the goal to recycle the materials and avoid disposal to landfill. Customers are welcome to visit the sites to inspect and check if these recycled materials meet your expectations and suit your purpose.
