On 18 March 2021, we received $20.5 million in funding from the Ministry for the Environment (MfE) to provide essential waste infrastructure to reduce the waste sent to landfill. The funding will go towards kerbside collection bins for 58,000 households; upgrading Te Maunga Transfer Station; and expanding our recycling service to include number 5 plastic bottles and containers.

The Te Maunga upgrade will cost $14.5 million, with $10.5 million being funded by the MfE. The remaining funding will come from transfer station income.

Our partnership with MfE means the kerbside collection service will now cost $210 per household for the first year. The previous cost was $230 per household.

Together, we can halve the amount of household waste we send to landfill each year.*

*We expect the new service to halve the amount of waste the average household sends to landfill each year by 2028.
