A refuse transfer station (RTS) is a place where the public, including businesses and industries, can dispose of their waste. They are a station where refuse is stored prior to its transfer from the city to the rural landfill.
The Hastings district has two Refuse Transfer Stations; Blackbridge on the way to Haumoana, and Henderson Road in Flaxmere.
The Hastings District and Napier City councils operate the Omarunui Landfill, situated at Omarunui Rd.
The landfill is only open to commercial operators/contractors with a Waste Disposal Licence - it's not open to the public. Members of the public should take their waste to one of the local Refuse Transfer Stations.
The Hawke's Bay Environment Centre are your one stop shop for disposing of your electronic waste. Electronic waste, or e-waste, is obsolete, broken or end-of-life electrical devices such as computers, fans, phones, printers and televisions.
