Refuse Transfer Stations
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 Rd 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. Some specialty recycling items such as Electronic waste will incur a fee to cover the costs of shipping and manual dismantling.
Our famous Green Bins are here.
Henderson Road Recycling Centre has been upgraded to feature our user-friendly Green Bin recycling containers. Seven containers have been installed to improve capacity, site tidiness, flow, safety and ease of use.
