Refuse Transfer Stations

Image of Transfer station. The two Refuse Transfer Stations (RTS) in Hastings District are depots for the public to dispose of their general waste, garden waste and recycling. At the stations, garden waste (or ‘Green Waste’) is separated and carted to the composting plant BioRich in Awatoto. General Waste is transferred to Omarunui Landfill, and various recyclables such as electronic waste (or ‘E-waste’), glass, paper, plastic, and scrap metal are all transported to various local and national processors.

Henderson Road allows you to recycle your old car batteries, televisions, white ware, an assortment of household goods, and used motor oil. Both transfer stations incur a fee for disposal of general waste and green waste. Recycling and orange bag drop-offs are free.
