Refuse transfer stations
There are two Refuse Transfer Stations (RTS) in Hastings where residents can dispose of their general waste, garden waste and recycling; one in Haumoana, the other in Flaxmere.
Council encourages residents to sort their rubbish into the three categories before taking it to one of the transfer stations, so that green waste and recycling does not have to go to the landfill.
At the stations, garden waste (or ‘green waste’) which is disposed of separately from general rubbish is carted to a composting company in Awatoto.
Recyclables such glass, paper, plastic, and scrap metal that have been kept separate from general rubbish are transported to various local and national processors.
General rubbish goes to the landfill.
At Henderson Road you can recycle your old gas bottles, car batteries, whiteware, an assortment of household goods, and used motor oil.
Both transfer stations charge a fee for disposal of general waste and green waste. Recycling and dropping off Council's orange rubbish bags are free.
The Flaxmere transfer station is in Henderson Rd; the Haumoana transfer station is in Mill Rd.
