Council Rubbish and Recycling FAQs

Find some answers to your questions

We've listened to feedback from the 2021- 2031 Long Term Plan consultation process about the way we manage rubbish and recycling services in Central Hawke’s Bay. As a result, we are making changes to solid waste services, that will come into effect across the district from 2 August, 2021.

We have included a new third teal crate for cardboard and paper to the kerbside recycling collection for Waipawa and Waipukurau. 003052 CollectionsChanges to your collection days will occur, from August 2, 2021. 

We are also extending kerbside recycling collection to the rural communities of Otāne, Takapau, Tikokino and Ongaonga. Changes to rubbish and recycling collection days in these areas will come into effect on August 5, 2021.
