Make the most of waste by the Auckland Council

Henderson Valley, Northern Waitakere Ranges, and Te Henga

Your collection day for the new recycling service will be on a Wednesday

Published: Thursday 22 February 2018

From 1 July your collection day falls on a Wednesday. Your first collection will be on Wednesday 13 July and fortnightly thereafter.

What you need to do:
•Use your new green recycling wheelie bin for collections after 1 July
•Put paper and cardboard in your recycling bin, but please no plastic bags
•Go to to tell us what you would like to do with your previous bin
To help with remembering your first collection date, simply free text your address to 3169 and we’ll send you a text reminder the day prior to your first collection.

Incorrect sticker on your bin:
Your recycling and orange bag council rubbish collection day differs from the information on your bin.

The collection day on your bin sticker is incorrect, please disregard it. We apologise for any confusion and inconvenience this has caused.

Your bin currently has a white sticker on the side, informing the collector what schedule you are on. We are providing new stickers to go over these, which will be replaced by the collector in July – you aren’t required to do anything.

Please note:
Your collection day may be a different to other residences in your neighborhood, which fall within a different collection route. They may be included in the Bethells Beach collection route.
