New bin service - 7 things you need to know

Published: Wednesday 1 February 2017

We’re binning the bags – 7 things you need to know Auckland Council is introducing a rubbish bin rubbish service in the former Manukau City Council area

  1.  The rubbish bin replaces rubbish bags,
  2. Each household will be supplied with a standard rubbish bin for rubbish (120 litre). This holds enough rubbish for a weekly collection for the majority of Auckland households.
  3. There will be no changes to current rubbish collection days.
  4. This service is rates funded and residents will pay no additional charges for the standard 120 litre bin.
  5. Bins will be delivered in June and July 2017, but won’t be used until the new service starts in September 2017.
  6. Collection services using the new rubbish bin will begin on 4 September 2017. Once this new service begins only rubbish in the bin will be collected.
  7. There is a larger bin option available on request:
  • it will incur an additional annual charge of approx $55 per year*. 
  • approval of a larger bin must be received from the property landlord/owner as the charge will go on their rates bill.
  • to request a larger bin please register your details here before 31 March 2017

*subject to consultation and approval in the Annual Plan
