Recycling Update

In Napier, we have decided that our kerbside recycling collection is an essential service, although this is not the case for a lot of New Zealand. We’ve done our very best to continue this service as normal. However, please look after our collection teams and do not approach them or their trucks.
Although we will collect your recycling as we normally do, please note the following changes.
  • We will continue to collect and recycle your glass bottles, cardboard and paper.
  • Your plastic and tins will continue to be collected, but they will not be recycled.

What can you do to help us?
1.Put your plastic and tins out for collection as normal. Although these items will go to landfill, please don’t put them in your rubbish bags as it will quickly overload this system.
2.If possible, store your plastics and tins until the recycling in Napier returns to normal.

Some other top tips:
  • Always wipe down your crate handles and wash your hands after you’ve touched your crate.
  • Rubbish and recycling should be placed kerbside by 7 am on your normal day.
  • As more people are home during the day and parking outside their homes, make sure your crates (or rubbish bags) are visible and are not blocked by vehicles.
