Sorting and preparing your rubbish and recycling

COVID-19 update

Delays to kerbside collections

  • Unfortunately, we are again experiencing significant delays with kerbside collections due to the impacts of Covid-19.
  • Glass collections will be put on hold from Monday 27 June for an estimated two weeks.
  • Rubbish and co-mingled recycling are being prioritised.

Missed collections

  • If your rubbish or co-mingled recycling has not been collected on your street on your normal collection day, please leave it out and it will be picked up the next business day.
  • If it still hasn’t been picked up by midday on the next business day, please contact us on 04 499 4444.

Preparing your rubbish and recycling for collection

  • Only official receptacles (yellow Council rubbish bags, green/clear recycling bags and recycling wheelie bins) will be collected. We have a good stock of yellow Council rubbish bags at the Arapaki Service Centre, the Tip Shop, and Johnsonville, Kilbirnie, Newtown or Tawa libraries.
