This year you'll need to register via our website. Right here! Fill out the form below and we'll send you an email confirming where and exactly when the collection will take place. Why are we doing things this way? We're wanting a better idea of the type and volume of rubbish so we can be better prepared. Please note that if you don't book ahead, you won't be able to use this HazMobile service. If you can't get online, our staff at the NCC Customer Centre (215 Hastings St), or at Napier Libraries will be able to help you.

Each year Hastings and Napier councils provide a free hazardous waste service for householders. The way we're doing things this year is a little different to the past.
The HazMobile accepts most hazardous materials you might find at home. These include:
HazMobile won't take the following:
Original packaging is preferred as it helps us recognise what you're bringing us. But generally:
A lot of what we collect can be recycled or even re-used.
For instance, most of the waste oil and petrol is re-used as fuel eg. to fire a large New Zealand cement kiln.
Wet cell batteries (lead-acid) are recycled in New Zealand, while rechargeable nickel-cadmium and mercury-containing batteries are recycled overseas.
Have some old computers or old-school televisions? You can take these to the Environment Centre Hawke's Bay in Hastings. They offer an excellent and reasonably-priced service.

The Hawke's Bay company 3R collects unwanted agricultural chemicals. This is done under the umbrella of the AGRECOVERY Rural Recycling Programme.
