The more materials we recycle, the better to reduce waste to landfill.
Concrete can be reused as aggregate. Car bodies can be used for scrap metal.
These materials will be accepted for recycling at Tauranga’s transfer stations for a charge. Fees vary.
- Car bodies
- Car tyres (charged as general waste with a maximum of 4 per load)
- Concrete-only loads
- Garden waste
