This service is a voluntary fortnightly collection using a 240L wheelie bin.
To opt into this service, all you need to do is come into Council, South Taranaki i-SITE Visitor’s Centre or any LibraryPlus to buy a sticker that goes on the front of your 240L wheelie bin and entitles you to your green waste being picked up on fortnightly basis from the kerbside for 12 months. It will be picked up on the same day as your other rubbish and recycling, but for the right date, you need to refer to the calendar you get given when you buy a sticker (or refer to the areas below).
The registration year begins in October and ends the following September, but you can buy a sticker at any point in the year.
A small amount of Organic Waste can also be added to this fortnightly collection. Click on a calendar below to find out more.
There is a maximum weight of 70kg when these bins are full.
The look of the sticker dramatically changes every 12 months so the contractor can easily identify whether you have a current green waste subscription or not. Council also keeps a record of the addresses that are signed up to this service.
