It's estimated up to 70% of landfill waste via kerbside rubbish bags could be recycled. That's why we've put this page together with some key reminders about kerbside recycling.
To find out what day we collect from your house weekly, enter your address into our Rubbish and Recycling Database.
Some or all items in a crate may be left behind. If items are left behind a sticker will be left on them to tell you why, to help you get it right for the next time. Here's some of the reasons why this could happen:
Omarunui landfill takes about 90,000 tonnes of waste every year.
Half of what is sent to Omarunui could be recycled or composted. Omarunui Landfill has a finite lifespan, dependent on the quanitity of waste going in. If there is opportunity to divert material from Omarunui landfill the lifespan will be maximised.
Our Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP) adopted in late 2018 aims to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by promoting the Five Rs - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Residual Management.
