Rubbish and recycling collection days

Our goal - working towards zero waste for the Waikato district

COVID-19 recycling collection updates

As waste is an essential service and we want to ensure these services continue there are some changes to ensure our drivers and runners are safe so please place your waste and recycling to the kerbside in the following way.

All items are to be washed clean (wash it like you would your dishes) - this is due to our awesome contractors not being able to handle the items for their health and safety during this time.

Please put:

  • Glass in one crate 
  • Tins, cans and plastics (labelled 1, 2 and 5)in the other crate. 
  • Secured and flattened cardboard/paper should go between or under a crate or in a cardboard box not in the crate.
  • If you only have one crate, please rotate your recycling. Glass one week and plastic, tins and cans the next week. 

View our collection days map below to find out the day of your rubbish and recycling collection.
