Kerbside collection service
On Monday, 9 May our kerbside collection service resumed normal operations following disruptions due to COVID-19. Rubbish, recycling, glass, and food scrap bins can be put out on their usual collection days.
Food scraps will be collected weekly, and rubbish, recycling and glass collections will operate across a fortnightly cycle.
If you have excess food scraps stored in your freezer, you can drip feed these back into the weekly food scraps collection. Please ensure your bin is not overflowing or too heavy for drivers to lift.
If you are unsure of when your collection day is, visit Tauranga City Council’s When to put your bins out, or download the Tauranga Kerbside Collections app.
For information on what can and cannot be put into each of the bins, visit What goes into my bins?
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
The disruption to service will also affect residents needing new or replacement bins. Our priority is currently to pick up as many collections as possible, therefore there will be some delay in other kerbside services.
The service changes above also apply to assisted service customers. Please ensure your rubbish and recycling bins are not overflowing or overweight so we can continue to service them.
Assisted service customers can contact Council on 07 577 7000 or email@example.com if they have any questions about their service.
