Next year we’ll be rolling out a campaign to keep our communities informed of the changes to our new kerbside collection service that starts on the 1 September 2023. 

Keeping up with the Kerbsiders

Everything from what goes in each bin; what days they’re collected; how the service will be funded; even what happens to your rubbish and recycling once it’s left your property will be covered. We’re really keen to know how our communities would like to receive this important information throughout the year, so we’re running a communications survey to find out. Take our survey by 5pm Friday 9 December and go in the draw to win one of five Reusabowls - the genius Kiwi invention that replaces single use takeaway containers.

The new kerbside collection will include:
  • new weekly food waste collection bin

  • new fortnightly 140 litre landfill (rubbish) bin – replacing yellow plastic bags

  • A fortnightly collection of mixed (co-mingled) recycling in current recycling bin

  • A fortnightly collection of glass recycling in current bin

Reducing waste to landfill and repurposing recycling is the goal
We've got some big goals to help households and businesses reduce waste to landfill by 41 percent by 2028 and reduce organic waste to landfill by 90 percent by 2029. That's where the new kerbside collection that starts on the 1 September 2023 kicks in.
If you're a Hauraki District resident, Keep up with the Kerbsiders by telling us what communication channels you prefer for receiving our rubbish and recycling news. Remember to take our survey by 5pm Friday 9 December to go in the draw to win one of five Reusabowls.
