Your rubbish and recycling collection day

IMPORTANT INFO ON THE STICKER
 

Your rubbish and recycling collection day will be written on the side of your new wheelie bin.


Because we’re only collecting your wheelie bin every other week we’ve allocated houses to either ‘week 1’ or ‘week 2’. The sticker on your bin will show whether your wheelie bin collection is on week 1 or week 2: that will be the week for your wheelie bin; the following week will be for your crates.

Collection Sticker

For example, if your wheelie bin is week 1, your crate goes out week 2.

COASTAL COLLECTIONS


For those on the Masterton Coast (Tinui, Riversdale and Castlepoint) and the South Wairarapa coastal and rural areas (Ngawi, Tora and White Rock), there’s no change to your rubbish and recycling collections — just continue to use your existing recycling bins as usual. You can take excess material to your local transfer station.

How your collection calendar works

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS


When a public holiday falls on a collection day, collections throughout that week will be a day later.

Where to put your bin

  • Make sure it’s close to the road edge, but at least one metre away from other objects
  • Stay clear of any cars and overhead hazards such as trees and electricity wires (so there’s enough room for the truck’s mechanical arm)
  • Make sure lids are closed and latched, and the front of the bin faces the road (wheels are at the back)

NO EXIT + PRIVATE ROADS

 

If you live in a cul-de-sac or no exit road… we’d appreciate your help putting your bin in a place where our trucks can safely access it. Bins that have been placed in difficult access locations may not be collected.


If you live on a private road… Your bin must be placed on the kerbside of a public road which is on our collection route. We do not service private roads.
