Make the most of waste by the Auckland Council

Recycling rollout - the top five changes

Published: Monday 22 May 2017

  • New, larger green recycling bins are used from 1 July
  • Collection days are changing – check online or free text 3169 for a reminder
  • Paper and cardboard can go in the new bin – but no plastic bags
  • North Shore and Waitakere residents are encouraged to keep their old blue bins to for a new paid rubbish service launching early 2017
  • Rodney and Hibiscus Coast – only your recycling date is changing as you don’t currently have a council operated rubbish service
