You can buy bin tags at your supermarket checkout, dairies and petrol stations. You can also buy them at Auckland Council service centres, libraries and the Waitākere Transfer Station.
The new pay-as-you-throw rubbish bin service is flexible and focused on value for money – you only pay when you decide you need your bin collected.
So, the less often you put your rubbish bin out, the more money you will save.
Tag types and prices
The pre-paid tags will cost $3.80 per bin tag for an orange tag for a standard-sized rubbish bin (120L or 140L).
If you have a larger bin (240L), you'll need to buy a green tag for $5.50.
