Labor MP Penny Sharpe is to refer Gosford council to the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

The NSW opposition will refer a council embroiled in an illegal waste dumping scandal to the state's corruption watchdog.

Labor's Penny Sharpe said she will refer Gosford council, now part of the Central Coast Council, to the Independent Commission Against Corruption following accusations it was complicit in illegal dumping.

"There are allegations of corruption, there are allegations of the mismanagement of landfill ... the community has been blowing the whistle on this for a very long time," Ms Sharpe told AAP on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the state's legislative council has agreed to extend an existing investigation into dumping to include the allegations aired by this week's ABC's Four Corners program into waste management, Ms Sharpe said.
