Wheelie bin clips
This initiative is part of Council’s Long-term Plan 2018-28 commitment to protect and enhance Wellington’s natural environment. New recycling wheelie bins are delivered with a wheelie bin clip, to ensure contents stay dry and secure.

If your clip is lost or stolen, you can buy a replacement directly from SafeWaste The delivery of the product within New Zealand is free.

Installing your recycling wheelie bin and clip
As well as the installation video below, we’ve printed installation instructions on the packaging. Please don't put two clips on the recycling wheelie bin as it is a health and safety hazard for our collection team.
