There are several options for recycling in Tauranga
Kerbside glass recycling collections are included in your rates. For all other kerbside recycling collections you will need to pay a licensed private contractor. You can also drop off your recycling at the Te Maunga or Maleme Street transfer stations for free (depending on the material).
