On 23 November 2020, the day of kerbside collection for residential rubbish and recycling was changed in Waipukurau.

Please view the map below to find out if your property is located in the ORANGE ZONE or the GREEN ZONE

IF YOU'RE ZONED ORANGE, put your rubbish AND recycling to the kerb by 7.30am on a MONDAY

IF YOU'RE ZONED GREEN, put your rubbish AND recycling to the kerb by 7.30am on a TUESDAY

Racecourse Road Residents: 

  • Racecourse Road - all properties with even numbers are in the orange zone, your rubbish and recycling collection is on Monday 
  • Racecourse Road - all properties with odd numbers are in the green zone, your rubbish and recycling collection is on Tuesday

There are a few reasons for this change:
• We’re responding to an increase in volume of recycling in Waipukurau – thank you for doing your bit to help us become a Waste Free CHB!
• We’re making room for greater efficiencies of service, by collecting your rubbish and recycling on the same day, and on time.
• We’re looking after the health and safety of contractors as we accommodate the increase in kerbside recycling.

For clarification or if you have further questions, please contact Council.

Please note that all rubbish and recycling must be put to the kerb by 7.30am on your day of collection. Please ensure that you are only including recyclable materials in your crates for collection.
