Normal drop off recycling (cardboard, paper, plastics (1-7), cans and glass will be accepted if it is clean)
Please continue to practice safe hygiene practices and social distancing for your protection.
All recycling must be placed at your kerbside on your collection day by 7.30am and must be in a Council crate.
If your house receives kerbside recycling collection as part of your rates, your property has been allocated two crates – one red for glass recycling, and one black/blue for all other recycling (paper, cardboard, plastics (1-7) and cans). Recyclables must be clean and lids/tops removed (for rubbish).
If you haven’t already got these, one crate in each colour is available to you free of charge. It is really important to use these crates, as it allows our team to easily identify recycling crates for pick-up which speeds up the collection process. It also means we know that these crates can be lifted safely by our staff, as long as they aren’t overfilled!
The crates belong to your property and must remain with your property when you move. If you require a crate for your recycling, please call the Council on 06 857 8060, or pop in and see us at our Waipawa office on Ruataniwha Street, or at the Waipawa District Library.
Larger volumes of recycling can be taken to the Recycling Drop-Off Centre at any time and disposed of for free.
To ensure your recycling is able to be processed, it is important that the correct recycling is put out in the correct crate.
As from 1 July 2020, recycling crates which contain the following items will not be collected
Businesses have a separate Commercial arrangement with the Kerbside Collectors and this does not form part of Council’s Kerbside collection. Businesses will be collected as per usual and a separate arrangement is being worked out and will be communicated in due course.
Let's work together to be Waste Free CHB!
