Kerbside recycling is included in your rates
Council’s kerbside collections includes recycling services. You can recycle plastic containers and bottles numbered 1, 2 and 5, paper, cardboard, tins and cans in your yellow-lid wheelie bin. In your blue crate you can recycle glass bottles and jars. If you have additional recycling, you can take it to the Te Maunga Transfer Station or Maleme Street Transfer Station for free (depending on the material). Please note: Maleme Transfer Station closed to the public on 2 August 2021.
It’s best to limit the amount of waste we produce in the first place. If we can’t avoid creating waste, we should at least find ways to reuse or recycle as much as possible to make better use of existing materials and reduce waste to landfill.
