Tauranga City Council provides a rates-funded glass collection and a pre-paid rubbish bag service only.
All other kerbside collection services for residential rubbish, mixed recycling and garden waste are provided by private licenced kerbside collection companies. Only plastic numbers 1 and 2 are currently accepted in kerbside recycling.
Council will be introducing full rates-funded kerbside collections in 2021.
Waste collections over Easter
All collections that would normally take place on Good Friday, 10 April, will take place on Saturday, 11 April instead. Easter Monday collections will take place as normal.
