We are putting systems in place to ensure our essential services continue during the COVID-19 Level 4 isolation period, and beyond.

Waste management and collection is important for our community, and council is asking for your help to manage this in the weeks ahead.

  • Kerbside rubbish collection will continue as normal – please have your orange bags out by 7.30am on your collection day. Orange bags can be purchased from supermarkets but you may need to ask at the checkout for them.
  • Kerbside recycling is suspended. Please help us out and store your recycling at home, if it is safe and won’t create a sanitation issue.
  • The roll-out of the new recycling crates will also be suspended.
  • Recycling stations are closed, this includes the six rural sites.
  • The Henderson Road and Black Bridge transfer stations are closed to the public but open to existing account holders from Thursday 26 March.
  • You will still be able to drop your orange bags to Henderson Road and Black Bridge transfer stations
  • Omarunui Landfill will be fully operational to registered users only.
