No change to kerbside recycling from national roll-out

black bins

National standardised rules for kerbside recycling come into force across New Zealand from tomorrow – but in Napier, Hastings and Central Hawke’s Bay ‘we’re all good’!

That is because these areas of the region already collect the materials specified in the Government’s new national guidelines.

The waste teams from the three councils have confirmed that: ‘we’re all good – we just need to keep doing what we’re doing’.

That means residents in all three areas can continue to put out glass bottles and jars, cans, paper and cardboard, and plastics numbered 1, 2 and 5.

The messaging from Government on why these products can be collected aligns with the messaging from the three councils: “The changes will ensure that where waste is recycled . . . it is less likely to be contaminated by material that cannot be used.”
