Rubbish and recycling collection days

Our goal - working towards zero waste for the Waikato district

Easter rubbish and recycling collection

Collection day changes over Easter:

Everyone except Raglan – if your recycling and rubbish is normally on a Friday, this week it’ll be Saturday, if it’s normally Monday it’ll be moved to Tuesday instead.

 Raglan – your collection is on Good Friday (remember this does not include recycling).

If your recycling is still being collected make sure it’s clean and sorted and if not store it clean. If you only have one crate, please rotate your recycling. Glass one week and plastic, tins and cans the next week.  

COVID-19 recycling collection updates

Glen Murray

The monthly Glen Murray recycling drop off in April will be postponed until May. We understand this is an inconvenience but it is to ensure that we are keeping you and our contractor safe. There is significant risk that a gathering of people will mean appropriate social distancing cannot be maintained.

You will need store your recyclables for this period and they are ensure washed and clean.


Xtreme Zero Waste is closed until further notice. This means you will need to store your recyclables (glass, plastics, aluminium cans, tin, paper and cardboard) until it can be collected and processed at a later date.

Raglan kerbside collections for foodwaste and pre-paid bags only are as follows:

◾️Existing Tuesday and Wednesday collections will now be Wednesdays
◾️Existing Thursday and Friday collections will now be Fridays

Please ensure you wash your recyclables thoroughly before storing them
