Kerbside Recycling Collection
Our Kerbside Collection Service accepts plastic, glass, tin, paper and cardboard for recycling.  Remember to prepare your items for recycling to reduce contamination:
  • remove the lids
  • scrape out any food remains/pour away excess liquid
  • rinse the container clean 
  • squash tins and plastics, and flatten cardboard.
The types of plastic packaging that can be recycled will have a 1 or 2 symbol marked on them.

​​​​​​​Please place your green bin on the kerbside by 8am on the day of collection.

Piopio, Mokau/Awakino, and Waitomo’s collection day is Tuesday. Te Kuiti’s collection day is Friday.

You can let us know if you have a concern or query with our service by contacting us on 07 878 0800 or free phone 0800 932 4357.
