Have you got a shed full of old paint cans, used batteries or old gas bottles? Now is the time to clear it all out!

We are holding a FREE Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day with our HazMobile, so these items can be disposed of safely, in a way that protects our people and the environment.

You will need to book out a time between 9am to 4pm on Sunday, April 16 to drop your hazardous waste at Waipukurau Transfer Station by filling out this form. Make sure to pre-book your place to avoid delays or missing out. You can now book a timeslot by going to CHBDC Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day Tickets or by scanning the code below:
