Each bag of refuse you put out for the Council collection in North Waikato and Central Waikato requires a pre-paid blue sticker.
This new user pays service means how much you pay is determined by how much waste you produce. This is the fairest and most cost-effective way to encourage everyone to minimise their waste.
Price per sticker is RRP $1.50. This cost will pay for the collection and disposal of your weekly kerbside refuse.
In Raglan, pre-paid bags cost $2.80 for a 60L bag or $1.50 for a 25L bag. These bags are available from Raglan Four Square, Raglan Super Value, Wainui Foodmarket, Xtreme Waste Shop, BP2Go Raglan and the Te Uku Store.
Tuakau urban residents are supplied with a 120L wheelie bin for refuse. A $3.00 pre-paid tag will need to be purchased and attached to the wheelie bin’s handle prior to collection.
You can buy these stickers and tags in the local convenience stores, service stations and selected Waikato District Council offices and libraries listed below.
