IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL
To keep our Contractors and their families safe please
“If you have rubbish that has been generated in an infected household or where someone is in isolation please double bag and seal. Please do not put this rubbish out until a period of 72 hours has passed since producing it”.
We need to keep our people safe and everyone safe!

Kerbisde recycling collection - As on Monday 23rd March, our recycling collection and operation has stopped, until further notice. This means that if you place your yellow recycling bag on the kerbside, it will be collected as rubbish.

Kerbside rubbish collection - Our kerbside waste collection (blue bags) will be continuing as normal. The only change is if you're normally collected on a Friday, this will now be collected on a Thursday instead of a Friday (this includes Mako St, Dargaville - Tangiteroria - Tangowahine Valley,). Avoca Road and Waihue
Finally, we would like to wish everyone well in the coming weeks. Be kind to everyone and stay safe.


All collections remain the same unless advertised prior (these are advertised on our Home page)

To avoid non collection please ensure that all blue and yellow bags are placed on the kerbside by 8am of collection day

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Due to some people abusing the service, From today 3rd July we will not be picking up ANY BLACK BAGS even if they have a blue bag tied to them, from our kerbside collection.
