Rural recycling stations

Rural recycling stationIn our rural areas Council has set up a Green Bin recycling scheme. This works with the assistance of members of the communities who advise when the bins require emptying.

All household recycling – paper, cardboard, plastics 1, 2 & 5, cans and colour-sorted glass can be dropped off at the sites.

Planning for rural recycle stations started in 2012, to help rural residents move away from disposing rubbish on their farms. Hastings District Council's waste team identified appropriate rural sites, a design for the recycling facilities and a way of managing collection in far-flung areas.

We have six rural recycling stations across our district. These are all seven days a week and unfenced.

  • Tūtira
  • Poukawa
  • Pukehamoamoa
  • Maraekākaho
  • Waimārama 
  • Waipātiki

Our rural drop-off points need your help. Please:

  • Report abuse of the sites
  • Let us know if the bins are almost full
  • Keep it clean
  • Do not dump items outside of bins

Please remember: Incorrect items and rubbish dumping at these sites could lead to their closure.
